Anna Kennedy OBE honoured by campaign that recognises incredible women
Leading autism ambassador Anna Kennedy OBE has been honoured by a campaign that recognise incredible women.
The campaign, set up by Amnesty International aims to honour incredible women who are working to make a difference in their local community.
The project encourages readers to nominate inspirational, yet ordinary women, who are often-unsung heroes, to be recognised on an interactive map that will launch on International Women’s day on March 8.
The map is a symbol of the suffragettes’ legacy – proudly displaying how far we have come over the past century, but also highlighting how much life-changing work is still being carried out today in every corner of the country.
Kate Allen, director Amnesty International UK said “One example is Anna Kennedy OBE, a campaigner born in Middlesbrough who now lives in London has worked tirelessly to help people with autism. In her wide portfolio of work she has set up a two specialist schools, creates opportunities and scholarships in the Performing Arts World, setup a Vocational a college and campaigned for better diagnosis of the condition as well and helped tackle autism-related bullying in schools.”
