According to the Chairperson, Mrs Fiedtkou – “I am excited to be heading this diverse group of professional, independent and accomplished women and we will do our best to create a strong base to empower our girls and women for the future.”
The first engagement in 2021 will be a Women in Sports Leadership workshop.
