What an eventful evening, celebrating the Women Leaders in our Club!
Charlotte Kneer DL, CEO Reigate and Banstead Women’s Aid (RBWA) and honorary member of our Club, was invited to talk to us this week about herself as a leader and those women who inspire her. Charlotte spoke about her role as CEO of RBWA and of the recent honour she received as Deputy Lieutenant of Surrey in recognition for her work in the county.
Charlotte has truly been an inspiration and talked openly about her own background as a domestic abuse survivor. She described how that has helped to shape the woman she is now and how she is able to support women who have gone through similar experiences. You can read more about the work we have done to support RBWA and our focus on the elimination of Violence Against Women and Girls
Another inspiring woman from our Club is Jane Malden, who received a Long Service Award for 40 Years Membership as a Soroptimist. This was presented to Jane on Zoom by Diana Porter who paid tribute to Jane’s dedication over the years saying ‘Whatever the club has done, Jane has been there in her quiet way, leading, reminding, supporting and doing’. You can read the full tribute to Jane here: Jane Malden. Congratulations Jane, we wish you all the best for your future years with Soroptimists!
