Structure and Core Roles

We operate a small leadership team, where each member takes a role within the shared leadership of the TIGERS. These roles will be elected with a two year tenure with elections held at the annual general meeting. We shall monitor processes used to search for and elect new members to these roles with diversity in mind.

As of the 16-May-2019, we have the current (and interim) leadership structure:

  • TIGER-in-Charge - Rachel Oliver [2019-2021]
  • Deputy TIGERs-in-Charge (communication) - Nat Stephen [2019-2021]
  • Deputy TIGERs-in-Charge (planning and strategy) - Tanvir Hussain [2019-2021], Ines Pineda [2019-2021], Ben Britton [2019-2021]
  • Deputy TIGERs-in-Charge (social media) - Michael Sulu [2019-2021] and Sam Giles [2019-2021]
  • Deputy TIGERs-in-Charge (scribe) - Anson Mackay [2019-2021]
  • Deputy TIGERs-in-Charge (website) - Lilly Hunt [2019-2021] and João Fonseca [2019-2021]
  • Deputy TIGERs-in-Charge (impact) - Erinma Ochu [2019-2021], Jessie Boland [2019-2021], Alexandra Olaya-Castro [2019-2021], Cerys Bradley [2019-2021] and Jonathan Levitt [2019-2021]
  • Welfare TIGERs - Vanessa Diaz [2019-2021], Jullie Jebsen [2019-2021], Andrew Princep [2019-2021], Candice Majewski [2019-2021], Caroline Gauchotte-Lindsay [2019-2021] and Anna Cupani [2019-2021]

New leadership roles may be created and old roles removed as the group evolves; this will be decided by the TIGER membership.


For specific issues, we also operate a number of roles that will have targeted briefs, often restricted to time-limited campaigns and actions. For these roles, we encourage job-sharing and other flexible arrangements to minimise barriers to participation. Examples may include: evidence gathering for a specific activity; working directly with a learned society/institution on a specific issue; and (co-)leading a working group.


The TIGERS will act together as an inclusive group to further its mission. There are two categories of those involved with TIGERS - “members” and “supporters”.

  • Members must adhere to the code of conduct of the group, and will have a voice in determining the mission and actions of the group. For instance, they may have access to our Slack channels.
  • Supporters may be involved in a specific action or activity that is broadly in line with the group’s mission. For instance, they could be recipients of our mailist.
