Campaign Update for Welsh Government

Had a great meeting  today with Kim Phelps, Head of the Hair Sector for Welsh Government updating her on our ‪#‎getregistered campaign.

It was fantastic to hear that Kim was up to date with all my campaigning activity from following my blog. We also discussed the proposed State Registered Hairdresser’s Day 2017 with a launch at The Senedd and our work with Joy Kent at Chwarae Teg researching into opportunities for women in the hair sector and the gender pay imbalance.

I have promised to keep Kim up to date with all of our current project and research.

Next stop on the Campaign Tour is Coleg Gwent on Friday. Really looking forward to meeting all the soon to be qualified Level 3 students, to update them on the campaign and impress on them, what they can do to continually professionalise the industry.
