Press Release: 7 July 2008

We are pleased to announce that Dinah Cox, Chief Executive of Race on the Agenda, has been awarded an OBE in this year's Queen's Birthday Honours List.

She has been awarded the honour for services to Community Relations in London. Dinah said "I'd liked to thank all those who have helped ROTA and myself to achieve this success. I'm pleased and flattered to receive this recognition which wouldn't have happened without the amazing work of my colleagues and others who have supported our work over the years, to make the city a better place for all Londoners. I looked forward to celebrating with my family, friends and colleagues over the summer."

Dinah continues in her capacity as Chief Executive of ROTA until August when she will be leaving to become the first Executive Director of Rosa, a new initiative set up to raise the profile and funding for women's projects in the UK.
