Want to know more about the outstanding role models we’ve chosen as our ambassadors? Here’s another high-achieving woman that the What I See team admires.
As a Fellow of the Royal Society and an ambassador for Make Justice Work, Baroness Deborah Stedman-Scott OBE has spent the majority of her career encouraging the recognition of the vast range of unacknowledged contributors to our society.
She became Chief Executive Officer of the Tomorrow’s People Trust in 1984, leading the way for more employment opportunities for young people and adults in the U.K. She co-founded the Employment Related Services Association, a trade body that helps to secure sustainable employment, and was its first chair.
Appointed a Deputy Lieutenant for East Sussex in 2007, she also finds the time to be a trustee of the New Devon Opera and New Philanthropy Capital!
We love her generous spirit and enthusiasm for helping others. “I always felt that there was something to be done so I’d better get on and do it,” she explains in her video.
It’s no wonder the UK Charity Awards named her Charity Principal of the Year in 2005.
