Fingal She Leads Women’s Leadership Photo Exhibition
The Exhibition involves 45 photos and stories showcasing the leadership of Fingal Women in Community Action as part of International Women’s Day.
Through our Eyes, the Power of Women’s Leadership in Community Action, is an initiative of Fingal County Council’s She Leads We Lead Women’s Leaders programme. It recognises and celebrates the leadership of women in a visual way and serves to inspire others to take an active role in their own communities. The Exhibition involves 45 photos and stories showcasing the leadership of Fingal Women in Community Action as part of International Women’s Day. All women involved are volunteers in their local communities from the disability sector, community arts and culture, sporting group, residents and tidy town groups, youth representation, and wider community supports.
Fingal She Leads, We Lead focuses on strengthening Women’s Leadership in Fingal and particularly explores the achievements, challenges and opportunities that women experience in community action. The programme commenced in March 2021 with A Conversation on Women’s Leadership in the Community and continues to provide leadership training, information talks and opportunities to network.
Mayor of Fingal Cllr. Howard Mahony opened the exhibition and acknowledged all 45 women to took part from across Fingal. He added that their stories are showcasing the leadership of women and will inspire others to get involved.
The project was led by the Community Development Office and the She Leads Advisory Committee. All photos were taken by a volunteer photographer, Monica Manzzi, a member of the advisory committee.
