Social Policy - Board of Directors Human Rights & Equality Council
When I worked as a Consultant for the UK government on issues of social change. I had special interests in race relations, substance misuse, gender equality, and community affairs. My research projects had an emphasis on action at the grass-roots level and were designed to create highly focused development programmes, the action for policy change and frameworks for media campaigns, with built-in time-bound evaluation periods, enabling me to re-visit the projects and ensure they were moving in the right direction. Producing researched reports, recommendations, and evaluations I was directly impacting the social policy framework.
I continued to make a difference in my own small way and accepted joining the prestigious Board of Directors at Medway Human Rights and Equality Council.
It was during my contact with local groups and grass-root level research that I founded Tamana productions, an all-women drama group from diverse backgrounds, giving a voice to women who may otherwise not be heard. The aim was to explore social issues through drama.
