Women in public life awards @wipla_2013

I was delighted to win the category of local government personality of the year at the 2013 Dod’s and FDA Women in public life awards.  I feel really humbled and privileged to have won this award, considering the other shortlisted women in this category and their achievements. It’s wonderful to be acknowledged for my work in the local community but the most important thing is that the residents of Barking and Dagenham put their trust in me to represent them on the council.  I am determined that this achievement will only serve as further encouragement to us all to break down the barriers to women getting involved in public life.

You can see all of the award winners here.

The awards were presented at a public sector conference for women in leadership in London on 12 September. Judges included Baroness Glenys Kinnock and Laura Kuenssberg, ITV’s Business Editor.  The awards, in association with ActionAid UK the international development organisation, celebrate women leaders in society, seeking to recognising and promote the work of women in politics, business the civil service and community leadership.
