Rowena Lewis

Director of fundraising, Gingerbread from February 2012

Rowena Lewis is director of fundraising at Gingerbread, a post she took up in February 2012.  

She was one of the inaugural Fellows on the Clore Social Leadership Programme, in 2010, researching the role of women in the sector.  She published the report from her work on this in late January. Close to Parity: Challenging the voluntary sector to smash the glass ceiling was launched at an event at Bates Wells and Braithwaite in late January 2012.

While doing her Clore Fellowship, Lewis was also project lead for the Philanthropy Review chaired by Marie Curie Cancer Care CEO Thomas Hughes-Hallett.

Rowena has ten years experience in fundraising, starting out as a street fundraiser in 2001. Before starting her Fellowship she was head of fundraising and development for the Fawcett Society.

The 'Back Britain's Charities' campaign has been done before, says Rowena Lewis, in the form of the Give More campaign

Stop the jousting and start pulling together, pleads Rowena Lewis as she reflects on umbrella bodies' responses to the huge drop in individual giving reported yesterday.

The sector needs to better support its women, says Rowena Lewis

As the sector dedicated to social justice, why are charities not making better progress at smashing the glass ceiling? Rowena Lewis says leadership is needed.

Must we get our kit off to get noticed?

Rowena Lewis is shocked by the Autism Trust's new poster campaign showing its founder 'getting 'em out' for the boys.

Invisible women in fundraising

The fact that 47 per cent of women at the top fundraising jobs of charities when women fill almost two-thirds of all charity jobs is shocking.

Invisible women in fundraising

In her debut blog, Suzie Who says that that there should be more women in top fundraising positions - especially when men seem to have been doing not the best of jobs of it lately...

Where are the sector's female leaders?

Civil society organisations should be a shining example for workplace equality. Where are all the women at the top of our profession, asks Rowena Lewis.

Where did all the women go?

So we learn that the typical director of fundraising in the top 100 charities by income is a 45-year-old man. But 47 per cent of fundraising directors in the top 100 are women. That doesn't mean, however, there is gender parity in civil society organisations.
