In 2012, for the first time in its 108 year history, the Workers’ Educational Association (WEA) appointed a woman as its new Chief Executive. Ruth’s career is marked by a commitment to lifelong learning – in 2007 she was awarded an OBE for services to workplace learning and in 2010 she received an Honorary Doctorate from Cranfield University.
The WEA is in Ruth’s genes. Both her grandfather and father lectured for the WEA in the 1930s and 1950s, and she too was a part-time lecturer for them in the 1970s. Among other commitments, Ruth is a member of the Open University Council, and a Member Nominated Director of the Co-op Board.
