Alice Maynard wins NED Award

 

We’re very excited to congratulate AoC Board Member Alice Maynard on her recent award at the Non-Executive Director Awards. The NED awards recognize significant contributions in the business and not-for-profit sectors, and our own Alice Maynard was the recipient of their not-for-profit/public service organization award.

Maynard, who serves as the chairperson for the disability advocacy group Scope, is an exemplary chair and couldn’t be more deserving of the recognition this award bestows upon her. The NED Awards acknowledged that, “since Alice’s appointment the organisation has gone from strength-to-strength under her determined stewardship, with the resources to continue to support and positively impact the lives of thousands of disabled people.” They continue:

 

“Through her own experiences Alice understands the challenges faced by disabled people, whilst her vision and drive have made her a very effective leader.  As a result, she has worked closely with, challenged and mentored the Executive team to drive significant change across the organisation.

 

The Judges recognised that Alice has made a significant contribution to Scope, and felt she would be a positive force at any boardroom table.”

 

Maynard and her victory are also the subject of a feature in The Sunday Times, an informative and candid article about her experiences, qualifications, and mission.  It is well worth the read, and you can find a transcript on their website.

Congratulations Alice Maynard, we’re very fortunate to have such a brilliant chair on our board.
