Award-winning diversity expert will promote gender equality, human fulfilment, and sustainable development with prestigious new role

MDX Senior Lecturer and Diversity Lead Dr Doirean Wilson has become the UK Country Chair of the Higher Education Wing of G100, a global group of the top 100 powerful women.

G100 is an eminent and empowered group of top 100 women leaders in the world with a vision for the future, including Nobel Laureates, former Heads of States, Ministers, Businesswomen, Philanthropists, Investors, Entrepreneurs, Corporate and Community Leaders.

Dr Wilson will be working alongside women leaders who are engaged with diversity and inclusion, to develop a Vision Document that will provide suggestions and recommendations to institutions such as the United Nations and Governments worldwide.

“The aim is to create massive opportunities for women to promote gender equality, human fulfilment, and sustainable development,” she said.

Dr Wilson, who has worked at MDX since 2001, is a member of the Strategy Leadership and Operations academic department.

Her work focusses on Diversity Practice and Community Engagement; she wrote the university’s current EDI Module from her own research and advises the Met Police after being commissioned to promote their cultural awareness.

She was headhunted by G100 founder Dr Harbeen Arora Rai, who also established ALL Ladies League (ALL), Women Economic Forum (WEF),  Women’s Indian Chamber of Commerce and Industry (WICCI), and SHEconomy.

“I am ecstatic with the role as it demonstrates that my diversity work and insights are not only worthy, but of the highest standard,” said Dr Wilson.

Members of G100 include H.E. RosalĂ­a Arteaga Serrano, the first woman to have held the positions of President and Vice President of the Republic of Ecuador; Dr. Maya Morsy, President of Egypt’s National Council for Women (NCW), and H.E Violeta Bulc, former Deputy Prime Minister of Slovenia, and EU Commissioner for Transport.
