Emma wins Ethnic Minority Welsh Women Achievement Association Award

Last Updated: 29/05/2023

Every two years, the Ethnic Minority Welsh Women AchievementAssociation (EMWWAA) proudly hosts an awards ceremony to honour the best and brightest ethnic women in Wales.

South Wales Police and Crime Commissioner Alun Michael, said:

“I am delighted that the important work of Deputy Police and Crime Commissioner, Emma Wools, has been recognised with the Ethnic Minority Welsh Women Achievement Award for Leadership.

“Her passion and dedication is indeed an inspiration - she leads by example and is a great role model for all women and girls, particularly those of an ethnic minority origin.

“To me, this accolade is nothing short of what she deserves. Emma has led the work of the progressive Anti-Racism Action Plan for Criminal Justice in Wales which launched last September and is also the Senior Responsible Officer for the Women’s Criminal Justice Blueprint, which aims to improve the experience and outcomes of the criminal justice system for all women.

“Emma’s work is clearly helping to shape a fairer, more diverse and inclusive Criminal Justice System in Wales and her contributions will be felt for many years to come by the people of Wales.”

Emma was nominated by Karin Phillips, Deputy Director, Community Safety Division, Welsh Government.

South Wales Deputy Police and Crime Commissioner Emma Wools, said:

“I am extremely proud to pick up this award for Leadership and I am professionally and personally honoured to have been amongst so many incredibly talented and inspiring women.

“The award recognises work I am involved in with many colleagues who share my passion for an anti-racist Criminal Justice System in Wales.

“We have a big challenge ahead, but we have amazing people working towards very important goals and I am confident that we can change things for ethnic minority communities across Wales.

“I would like to thank and commend the work of the Ethnic Minority Welsh Women Achievement Association which gives ethnic minority women a wonderful platform to celebrate achievements and inspire others.”
