Anj Handa

I'm Anj, Founder of Inspiring Women Changemakers. When I launched a high-profile legal & media campaign journey in 2014, I had no idea that it would lead to being featured in the global media, books & campaigns. It taught me the skills I want to pass on to you. My focus on social impact & inclusion started way before 2014 though. From 2003-2011, I worked in employment & skills policy and practice and have spoken internationally about the subject. I've set up many multi-sector partnerships & have advised on investments of up to £50m. Trained in public speaking, media handling and Good Governance, I was one of Grant Thornton UK’s 100 Faces of a Vibrant Economy in 2018 and AFSA's Award winner for Positive Action in 2017. When I’m not running IWC, I Chair an arts organisation and am a university Governor. In other words, I have a lot to share!
