On Tuesday 8 June, we held our first ever virtual NFWI Annual Meeting! The event was live streamed from the beautiful RSA House in London while the audience tuned in from home. We had three outstanding guest speakers; HRH The Countess of Wessex, Baroness Hale and Dame Cressida Dick. All three delivered inspiring speeches covering strong women and empowerment, the need for more diversity in all areas of public life and the issue of domestic violence.
Thank you to the speakers for our proposed resolution, which this year is 'a call to increase awareness of the subtle signs of ovarian cancer'. Delegates will now have until the start of July to vote on whether to pass this resolution and make it a WI campaign.
This was the final NFWI Annual Meeting for our Chair Lynne Stubbings, who has been in the role for an amazing four years. Lynne spoke of how much she has enjoyed her time as Chair, and the kindness and warmth she's been shown by members wherever she's visited.
