0

This morning the British High Commissioner to Antigua and Barbuda Scott Furssedonn-Wood, along with the Resident British Commissioner to Antigua and Barbuda, Lindsy Thompson, hosted a breakfast with five of Antigua’s young, professional women in honour of the theme #BreakTheBias.

They hosted Zahra Airall, Gender Advocate & Educator; Sherrie Ann Brazier, leader in the private sector; along with Arica Hill, Refica Attwood and Sasha-gay Middleton, who are renowned leaders in the environment space.

The group engaged in a very open and frank dialogue about the local and regional context women have to navigate. It was acknowledged that while there remains quite a bit of work to be done, there are major changes that have been noted, especially among young people, that are worthy of celebration.

Significant attention was given to the youth and the shaping environment within which they exist.

Thompson, thanked their guests for their candour and applauded their advocacy to #BreakTheBias.

Furssedon-Wood stated “it was a privilege to celebrate International Women’s Day with such talented and dedicated advocates for change. Their determination to #BreakTheBias is an inspiration, not just today but all year round.”

The British High Commission St John’s extends a Happy International Women’s Day to all in Antigua and Barbuda.
