Daphne Jackson Trust 2022 Conference – Competition Winners

During our Daphne Jackson Trust 2022 Conference, “Overcoming Barriers and Making an Impact”, we held two iconic competitions. Read below to see an outline of our competitions and the winners of these prestigious awards!

Five Minute Fellow

The Five Minute Fellow section of our conference was to host an entertaining and engaging session, giving delegates an insight into how a Daphne Jackson Fellowship changes the lives of our Fellows. Six former Fellows took to the podium to use just two slides and a strict 5 minutes to say what their Fellowship has done for them! Chaired by Professor Dame Athene Donald FRS, the audience voted for…

Dr Rebecca McFadden. Team Leader Space Situational Awareness, Deimos Space UK, University of Oxford.

Dr Katie Perry, Chief Executive, Daphne Jackson Trust, 5 minute Fellow Winner, Rebecca McFadden and Chair Vivienne Parry OBE.
