WADA seeks candidates for one seat on its Independent Ethics Board

WADA seeks candidates for one seat on its Independent Ethics Board

The World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) is seeking candidates to fill one Independent Member seat of its Independent Ethics Board (IEB). The IEB, alongside the Ethics Officer, is charged with implementing WADA’s Code of Ethics, which was approved by the WADA Foundation Board in 2021 and recently revised in November 2023. The purpose of the Code of Ethics is to establish clear ethical standards over the activities of WADA Officials (as defined within the Code of Ethics) to allow the Agency to achieve its global collaborative mission for doping-free sport and protect its core values.

The EIB is composed of nine members (1 x independent chair; 6 x independent members; 1 x sport movement member; 1 x public authority member).

One of the Independent Member positions will become vacant in May 2024, and this call for interest is aimed at finding a new IEB Member with a similar profile and skillset to that of the outgoing Member.

The new IEB Member will be appointed for a term of three years commencing 19 May 2024 and may be reappointed for two further terms of three years provided they continue to meet all relevant eligibility criteria. There are no age limits. A member may not serve on the IEB for more than nine years in total.

The new IEB Member shall have knowledge or experience in ethics or legal matters as well as experience at the senior management level in investigations, compliance investigations, or criminal prosecutions. For more information please view the role profile here.

Applications (including a CV, a motivation letter and a completed declaration of independence form) are to be forwarded by Thursday, 1 February 2024 to Ms. Diane Smith-Gander AO, Chair, WADA Nominations Committee (c/o governance@wada-ama.org).
