Human right award for alumna

03 November 2008

UCT graduate Dr June Bam-Hutchison, an author, activist and international communities-development strategist, recently received the prestigious Achievement Through Diversity Award at the 10th annual GG2 Leadership and Diversity Awards in the UK.

The award recognises Bam-Hutchison's work in human rights, peace and development education in South Africa and abroad, and her roles in the South African History Project and with the Institute for Justice and Reconciliation.

"This award is as much a tribute to my primary school teacher Edith Sechaba, and role models and mentors like educators Jean Pease and UCT's Prof Peter Kallaway," she said.
