Forward UK’s Naana Otoo-Oyortey will be the guest speaker at our FGM seminar in July

We are delighted that Naana Otoo-Oyortey MBE (Executive Director of Forward UK) will be joining Jeremy Weston QC at the FGM seminar on Wednesday 10th July.  She will be talking about the work of Forward UK.

There are now only a few places left for the seminar ‘FGM: The facts and is the law fit for purpose?’.  This seminar is an update of Jeremy Weston’s article published in February ‘Female Genital Mutilation (FGM): Its prevalence and the protection afforded by the present law’.  The article provides clarity for healthcare professionals, teachers and social care professionals on the law as it relates to child Female Genital Mutilation (FGM).

Naana Otoo-Oyortey MBE is the Executive Director of Forward UK, the lead organisation in the UK tackling FGM. She provides expert advice to the UK government on women and girls and the European Parliament on FGM and has over 30 years’ experience on gender and women’s human rights and previously worked with the International Planned Parenthood Federation and Commonwealth Secretariat.
