WADA seeking candidates for Risk and Audit Committee

The World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) is seeking candidates to fill two positions on the new Risk and Audit Committee (RAC). The Committee will monitor and assist WADA in fulfilling its responsibilities in terms of risk management, financial reporting and compliance with policies and regulations. The Committee was approved in May 2022 as part of WADA governance reforms and will be composed of three individuals, two of which will be independent experts. The third member will be appointed by and from the members of WADA’s Executive Committee.

Of the two independent expert members, one will ideally have recent and relevant experience in risk management and the other in accounting or auditing. Both independent experts shall have relevant governance experience. Their role is to provide their independent opinions and advice in terms of best practice in all areas of the RAC work.  

Successful candidates will hold the position for three years and may be reappointed for two further terms of three years provided that they continue to meet all relevant eligibility criteria. 

Applications are to be forwarded by Wednesday, 17 May 2023 to the Chair of the WADA Nominations Committee. More information on the role and on how to apply can be found here.
