Charity Breakfast 2017

This year our Keynote Speaker is Dr Evelyn Collins

Dr Evelyn Collins has been Chief Executive of the Equality Commission for Northern Ireland since March 2000, an organisation with a wide remit under Northern Ireland’s equality laws. Evelyn is a law graduate of Sheffield University, and has Masters’ degrees from University of Toronto (Criminology) and Queen’s University Belfast (Human Rights and Discrimination Law).

Evelyn has worked on equality issues since the 1980s, mostly in Northern Ireland but also as a national expert working on gender equality in the European Commission in Brussels. Evelyn is currently Chair of the Board of Equinet, the European Network of Equality Bodies, and a member of the European Commission’s Advisory Committee on Equal Opportunities between Women and Men. Evelyn also serves on the Board of the Chief Executives’ Forum in Northern Ireland and is a Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts.

Evelyn was awarded the CBE in 2008, for services to the public in Northern Ireland. In July 2014, the University of Ulster awarded Evelyn the honorary degree of Doctor of Law (LLD) for her contribution to the promotion of equality and good relations.


You will also have an opportunity to network with many of Bangor’s leading business people while you enjoy the Clandeboye Lodge’s ‘Breakfast of Champions’ to set you up for the day ahead!

Behind all of this lies your opportunity to engage with the Rotary Club of Bangor to support this year’s charities – all of which are locally based.  I hope you will join us and help exceed our expectations.
