We’re thrilled to announce that Professor Jacqueline Dunkley-Bent OBE will be our pre-event guest speaker at the upcoming Annual General Meeting on 8 November 2023.
As we edge closer to our Annual General Meeting (AGM) on 8 November 2023, we’re excited to share that our pre-event guest speaker will be the Chief Midwife at the International Confederation of Midwives, Professor Jacqueline Dunkley-Bent OBE.
Professor Dunkley-Bent OBE is the first Chief Midwife for the International Confederation of Midwives. Prior to this she served for four years as the first Chief Midwifery Officer for the NHS in England and was one of two National Maternity Safety Champions appointed by the Department for Health and Social Care.
Jacqueline is a registered nurse and midwife and a visiting Professor of Midwifery at Kings College London and London South Bank University. She has held senior positions in clinical practice, education, leadership and management and has supported the education of Midwives Internationally.
Jacqueline has a passion for supporting midwives and health systems to ensure that all women and gender diverse people have the same maternity experiences and outcomes as those who have the best. We’re looking forward to exploring these topics with her at the event at 10am on Wednesday 8 November. The event is followed by our AGM, and both events are exclusive to our members.
If you would like to attend both events, please register. Your membership details, along with all the details about both events, are contained in an email that was sent to your inbox on Tuesday 10 October.
