The Monthly Membership Meeting this month is really a must, as we are extremely fortunate to have a truly wonderful guest speaker and AIWM member, Professor Patricia Barker. The title of her talk is:
DON’T TELL ME I CAN’T
Looking back on her 70 years, Professor Barker considers the times in her life when she was told that, as a woman, she couldn’t do things. She shares some of those instances with us and reflects on what she has learnt along the way.
Patricia is a Chartered Accountant, and has a Masters in Philosophy and a Doctorate in Financial Disclosure. She has been the Vice- President of one of Dublin’s largest Universities and currently holds a number of company directorates. She is a counsellor with the Dublin Rape Crisis Centre, has been a Director of Women’s Aid and represents Ireland on the International Elections Observation Team. She spent three months living in the West Bank, looking at the human rights situation there, and has worked in many post conflict countries. She is a seasoned sailor and has skippered boats in waters as disparate as the Indian Ocean and the Antarctic.
