Women of the Future is delighted to announce that Her Royal Highness The Countess of Wessex is now our official Ambassador. The Countess has been a long-time supporter of Women of the Future, having attended the Women of the Future Awards and Summit in previous years.
We are absolutely thrilled to be making this announcement ahead of this year’s Summit on 16th November. The Countess will support each of the key elements of Women of the Future’s work, including the Summit, Awards, Network for alumnae and schools programme – and will support us on our mission to unlock a culture of kindness and collaboration, inspiring women everywhere to fulfill their potential.
Women of the Future’s Founder, Pinky Lilani CBE DL, said:
“We are honoured that HRH the Countess of Wessex has agreed to act as an Ambassador for Women of the Future. The Countess’ recent 450-mile cycling challenge from Edinburgh to Buckingham Palace demonstrates the same determination and entrepreneurial spirit evident in this year’s shortlist for the Women of the Future Awards! HRH’s support for Women of the Future over the last few years has been invaluable; we are truly grateful for her commitment to supporting the success of young women in the UK.”
