The NewNow is served by a small, nimble support team, led by a dynamic Executive Director. Our approach is to create platforms for distributed leadership, bringing new power to move existing power structures in all sectors – government, business and civil society. We do this by working with partners and collaborators on shared agendas. Over 2019 we have clear strategies to impact on two action areas: bringing rising women to the tables that matter, and delivering new ways of collectively building a better web. We are also working to identify how we will deliver impact on climate change and environmental restoration.
