Pink Shoe Senate
Members of the Pink Shoe Senate – Senators – bring a wealth of experience and expertise to Pink Shoe. They help to contribute to greater understanding of women in all aspects of business, career and public life, both within the network and in the wider community.
The main role of the Senate is to act as a sounding board; providing expertise, market intelligence, support and advice to Pink Shoe. Its external perspective assists the development of policy and practice.
The Senate is an advisory-only body and does not make decisions in its own right. Members are all voluntary and their role is completely autonomous.
The Senate provides specific advice and support on:
- Purpose and vision
- Strategy and planning
- International development
To complement the work of the Senate and its Chairman is the special post of Minister without Portfolio. This is a unique and strategic role with a wide-ranging remit across the network and charitable foundation.
