Conservatives in Communications (CiC), the independent network of 675 professionals (including 44 current MPs and peers), has doubled the number of industry patrons supporting its efforts, while ensuring that 50% of them are women.
Adam Honeysett-Watts, Principal Director, said:
“As an industry, we need to do more to support women in public affairs and communications. Thankfully, there are many great role models out there who are willing to lead by example. I’m glad that 50% of our core team are women and I’m delighted that, from today, 50% of our industry patrons are also women. In addition, they will volunteer their time as part of our ongoing CiC-Start Mentoring Scheme.”
The confirmed new industry patrons are Cllr Anita Boateng (FTI Consulting), Cllr Laura Round (freuds), Poppy Trowbridge (strategy and board advisory), Samantha Magnus-Stoll (Hanover) and Cllr Sarah Wardle (BECG).
