Donna Ockenden elected Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts
In February 2021 Donna Ockenden has been named as a Fellow of the Royal Society for the Encouragement of Arts, Manufacture and Commerce.
The fellowship is awarded by the Royal Society of Arts (RSA), and is limited to individuals determined to have made outstanding achievements to social progress and development.
The accolade has been awarded to Donna Ockenden for her work which has touched the lives of many throughout her career. Her work has been a catalyst for change to improve the quality of care for a broad section of people who use healthcare services across the UK.
The RSA was founded in 1754 by William Shipley in London. During the next 100 years, “the Society encouraged innovation and excellence through this scheme in six areas” including agriculture, manufacture, chemistry, mechanics, arts and trade, according to the society’s website.
Donna Ockenden said: “I am grateful to the RSA for electing me a Fellow. The previous Fellows have made very significant contributions to human knowledge and bettering our society and I am humbled to join their company. I look forward to working with current Fellows to advance our common goals of creating a more just and equitable world.”
