SWAP'ra (Supporting Women and Parents in Opera) | Co-Founder
SWAP’ra was established in 2018 to redress unconscious gender bias and to provide a supportive platform to effect positive change for women and parents in opera.
The charity works with individuals and organisations to address the systemic underrepresentation of women in senior decision-making and creative roles. We encourage industry leaders to recognise and address the challenges faced by a large proportion of the workforce. We enable women and parents to feel empowered and hopeful that they are needed and, most importantly, wanted in the industry.
