The network is governed by an Executive Steering Committee, comprises two representatives from each of its organisations. The committee nominates a chair for a three year term, which can be extended once. The current chair of RWSN is Louisa Gosling, since December 2019.
The RWSN Secretariat is the nerve centre of the RWSN and plays a crucial role in coordinating RWSN activities, ensuring they are in line with the overall objectives and as per the guidance provided by the RWSN Steering Committee and communicating with the RWSN members.
