Welcome to new Heads of the Gender Department
In this issue of Gender Dialogue, we wish to congratulate Ms. Ingrid Charles-
Gumbs, St. Kitts and Nevis; Ms. Miriam Roache, Saint Vincent and the
Grenadines, and Ms. Lera Pascal, Saint Lucia, on the assumption of the
positions of heads of the national machineries in those countries. One of the
purposes of this newsletter is networking and we are therefore providing some
information on these three new officers, in our ‘Profiles of the new Heads of the
national machineries for women’. We have also invited some of the “older
hands” to share some of their experiences as head of national machineries
and to give some advice. We are grateful to have received contributions from
Ms. Anita Zetina (Belize) and Ms. Sheila Roseau (Antigua and Barbuda).
We note that Ms. Jeannie Ollivierre, a long serving coordinator of the Women’s
Bureau in Saint Vincent and the Grenadines, has now retired from the public
service and we wish her all the very best. Ms. Bernadette Springer of Saint
Lucia is now the Administrator of the Gros Islet Polyclinic and Ms. Rosalyn
Hazelle has been promoted to Permanent Secretary in the Ministry of Social
Development in St. Kitts and Nevis.
