Kellie Turtle, Women’s Sector Lobbyist, will be leaving WRDA in October. Kellie joined WRDA in 2017 and has campaigned relentlessly on issues such as the Two Child Tax Credit Cap and Rape Clause, maternal mental health and childcare for all to name a few. Kellie will be working on a PHD on Reproductive Rights discourse in faith communities at Queens University and we wish her all the best.
We are excited to announce the new Women’s Sector Lobbyist will be Rachel Powell. Rachel has been committed to women’s rights and equality for many years and has an MA from Queen’s in Conflict Transformation and Social Justice. She was heavily involved in student politics and has been both VP for Equality and Diversity and VP for Postgraduates. Most recently Rachel worked as a Human Rights Officer for the Human Rights Consortium. We are looking forward to welcoming Rachel to the team.
