Virginie Assal

SHORTLISTED NOMINEE: 

POSITIVE ROLE MODEL AWARD FOR LGBT –


Virginie is the Women’s Programme Inclusion Officer at LGBT Foundation in Manchester, and works with BAME women, older women (50+) and trans women to increase their access to LGBT Foundation’s services and their engagement in the Women’s Programme. She currently leads a new project targeted to support lesbian & bi minority women around Greater Manchester through regular community events, outreach and awareness raising workshops for professionals and organisations. Over 150 women have attended Virginie’s community events in the past 11 months, most of whom have never accessed LGBT Foundation’s services before. In almost a year, Virginie has talked to 674 women at more than 50 events. This impressive role model moved from France to England 3 years ago, and works so tirelessly to lift a marginalised group of women who are further discriminated against due to their intersectional identities.
