Dr Amanda Lamb named on the prestigious Northern Power Women list for champions of equality and diversity

Dr Amanda Lamb, Chief Operating Officer of Connected Health Cities (CHC) at The University of Manchester, has been named by Northern Power Women as one of 100 women who contribute to making a difference in their communities and raise awareness of gender equality across the North of England.

Amanda, who is a founding member of CHC and has driven the team science approach to equality throughout the implementation of the CHC Method, is featured on the Future list which recognises the influencers and change makers of the future who are already making a difference in their environments and communities. The Future list is sponsored by design consultancy Morson Group. Amanda was also nominated in 3 other categories including transformational leader and the power list.

Amanda said “I am absolutely delighted to be named amongst this list of amazing change makers. I have been incredibly fortunate to be in a position where I have been able to influence the structure and balance of our teams for many years. I am a huge champion of a team science approach which values the skills a person can bring to a team rather than their position in a hierarchy. This approach ensures that we can give visibility and a voice to underrepresented groups.”

“I hope that I will be able to use this platform of the Northern Power Future List to be able to work with other influencers to ensure we keep driving change for the benefit of all.”

Simone Roche MBE, founder of Northern Power Women said: ‘I am extremely proud of these role models. They are amazing people doing fantastic work and they deserve every bit of recognition. Without the women on our Future and Power List it would be impossible for us to do what we do across the North. Each person named has played a part in driving forward the NPW agenda and have helped push out the boundaries.’

CHC is also delighted that Dr Liz Mear, CEO Innovation Agency and Director for the Northwest Coast Regional Connected Health City, has been named amongst the Power List. To find out more read here.
