The Governors of FfWG act as both trustees of the charity and directors of the company. They are elected at the Annual General Meeting and hold office for three years, with an option to be re-elected for a further three years. Two members of the Board are ex officio representatives from BFWG. They are all passionate about women’s education and want to ensure that the charity is as successful as it can be. They are the custodians of the charity’s assets and ensure that it is governed to the highest standard possible. To enable this, Governors come from a variety of backgrounds and have a variety of skills. They come from higher education, the law and the investment sector. Our current Board members are:
“I received my Foundation Grant as I neared the completion of my PhD. It was extremely helpful to me as I was able to complete my thesis within my desired time frame. After completing my PhD, I enjoyed six years working in Cambridge’s thriving IT industry. Although few pure mathematicians can claim to have used their research outside of academia,I was delighted to be given the opportunity to work for Spatial Technology Ltd. I continue to work for them as a contractor back home in New Zealand.”Dr Audrey Tan Hayes
