Congratulations to our Chair Jackie Driver who was awarded an OBE in the 2021 Queen’s Birthday Honours. The Cabinet Office announced Jackie as a recipient of an Officer of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire award (OBE) for “services to hearing impaired people, equality, diversity and inclusion”.
We are delighted to see that Jackie’s tenacious and creative advocacy for the rights and full inclusion of disabled people, women and LGBT+ communities in society – over many years – has been recognised in this way.
Jackie is also the Chair of the Deaf health charity Sign Health. See their article on Jackie’s OBE here in both British Sign Language and English.
