Equal Power Equal Voice (EPEV) mentoring programme Manager Joys was shortlisted in the Social and Humanitarian category – another wonderful achievement and recognition of her work leading the EPEV cross-equalities mentoring scheme to diversify Welsh public and political life, and of her advocacy for refugee women and children.

Congratulations to all the nominees and winners of this awards ceremony that shines a much-needed and deserved spotlight on the work and achievements of ethnic minority Welsh women.
