Our WLN board members were excited to be joined at our meeting at the City of Westminster College last week by Ann Limb, who was the original founding chair of the Women's Leadership Network — nearly 30 years ago. But of course, that's not the half of it.
Youngest woman principal of an FE college, founder of the Helena Kennedy Foundation, the list goes on and so do the accolades. Google her, and you get dozens of results.
Northern Power Women named her their Person with Purpose this
month and spoke to her about her amazing career in
On her Twitter profile @AnnLimb she describes herself as
"Philanthropist mover & Quaker 1st woman Chair @UKScouting;
Chair @UKICNewshttp://www.innovationcorridor.uk @ENTRUSTReg
Vice Chair @cityandguilds."
So, before the board meeting, Kathryn James couldn't resist grabbing the chance to catch up with Ann to bring you a #FEWomenspeakly podcast and find out about the early days of WLN; why over the last 2 or 3 months Ann's begun speaking out about her own intersectional identity; and what mentoring she'd go for as #FlippingMentoring network. There's loads more, but you'll have to listen because I'm running out of space.
