Welcome to the Scottish Asian Women’s Association
Scotland. Our home. Beautiful, proud, strong and diverse. Enriched even further by the outstanding contribution made to its continuing prosperity, by Scottish Asian Women.
After many years of planning, motivating and enthusing, it is a matter of great pride and honour for me to finally be able to launch, with the First Minister of Scotland, the Scottish Asian Women’s Association.
This charitable organisation aims to establish a network of Scottish Asian women from all professions, fields and disciplines, drawing upon a wealth of leadership skills, innovation and knowledge, with a view to enhancing their own personal and professional development and assisting those Scottish Asian Women in need of support, guidance and mentoring.
Our website scottishasianwomensassociation.com will be a tremendous resource in facilitating our interaction with each other, the respective Governments within the UK and all those who need to know who we are, what we do and our plans for the future.
We aim to meet in a different city each month, consulting with our membership as to what workshops and lectures they would like us to arrange for their benefit, in specific areas.
We hope that through encouragement, mentoring and information, we might inspire Scottish Asian Women to achieve their true potential and increase their representation and participation in public and political life in Scotland, becoming role models and ambassadors for the minority ethnic communities in Scotland.
The success of the Scottish Asian Women’s Association’s will depend upon the commitment to it , of each individual member.
Every Scottish Asian Woman has something unique to offer and in recognition of the outstanding contributions made to Scottish society in so many different ways, by these women, they shall be recognised and celebrated at the annual Scottish Asian Women’s Awards, with the inaugural Awards ceremony taking place in November this year.
Women are the full circle. Within us is the power to create, nurture and transform.
