To mark the occasion each inductee was presented with a limited edition print from Edinburgh-based print maker Jessica Crisp at a special event at Glasgow Women’s Library on 7th March 2017 . Previous inductees include First Minister Nicola Sturgeon, J.K. Rowling and Annie Lennox.
MIN is delighted to report that our Development Worker, Rose Filippi, has been awarded one of 150 Travelling Fellowships from Winston Churchill Memorial Trust in 2017.
The fellowships allow professionals working in the UK to carry out a wide range of research and development projects, designed to benefit their communities and professions in the UK. Rose will be travelling to Berlin and Brussels to research different integration projects in these cities. She hopes to be able to share the learning widely on her return so please get in touch if you would like to be part of the network of contacts she is currently developing.
