ASA Speaker Series: Dr. Fiona Bartells-Ellis

In September 2016, Dr. Fiona Bartels-Ellis, AGF Trustee and Head of Diversity at the British Council, visited ASA.

The world has many amazing women who inspire and change lives. Unfortunately the fact is that we don’t often hear about them. The African Science Academy always makes it possible for us to meet and socialize with great woman from all over the world.

On Thursday 29th September, Dr. Fiona Bartels-Ellis shared her world with ASA. She is the Head of Global Diversity at the British Council. She also happens to be one of ASA’s honorable trustees. The session was an educating discussion and we learned a lot. We discussed the ethics, values and attitudes that make one successful in life.

ASA sincerely appreciate all these wonderful women. We want to say “AYEKOO” to Fiona for the great impact she has made in our lives.
