NIHRC Welcomes new Boardroom Apprentice
This September, the Northern Ireland Human Rights Commission is welcoming another Boardroom Apprentice participant. Commissioners and staff are delighted to have Elsie Trainor join them. This is the fourth year that the Commission has been a Host Board as part of the Boardroom Apprentice scheme.
Alyson Kilpatrick, Northern Ireland Human Rights Commission’s Chief Commissioner, said:
“Along with my fellow Commissioners, I am delighted to welcome Elsie to the Commission as this year’s Boardroom Apprentice. Elsie will join us at our board meetings and I look forward to having her thoughts and insights. We have previously hosted three other Boardroom Apprentices and found it to be a very positive experience. I hope that Elsie will find it to be so too and that she will be able to learn more about our work and how a board operates.”
Elsie Trainor, Boardroom Apprentice, said:
“Being selected to be placed on the board of the Northern Ireland Human Rights Commission as a Boardroom Apprentice is a great privilege for me. Human rights have always been a core value of mine and it was for this reason that I sought this placement. It will be a privilege to observe first hand the processes and workings of the Commission, and to become engaged in the work of both protecting the human rights of everyone in Northern Ireland, and helping people understand what their human rights are. I know I will gain a great deal of knowledge and experience through this process and I hope that I will be able to contribute something of value in return. I am thankful to the Northern Ireland Human Rights Commission and the Boardroom Apprentice programme for this opportunity.”
