Anastasia Mihailidou

Vice Chair of the Board of Directors (Trustee)

Anastasia has been a Trustee since November 2016.

She has been an Organisational Development expert for charities over 15 years, with an interest in quality management, evaluation and governance. She is currently working at Mind. She is our company secretary and has been our Vice Chair since 2019.

And as if we didn’t already know how geeky she is about governance, she is starting a certificate on Charity Law and Governance in September 2021.

Why did you become a Trustee?

‘I was looking for a way to use my governance skills while putting my feminist values into meaningful action. I Choose Freedom was the perfect fit. Since then, we have achieved so much, we are really changing the world! I’m inspired by the amazing female leaders I get to work with. If it’s writing a policy or doing a ground-breaking documentary for national television, I’m in awe of the power, integrity and ambition the team – staff and trustees alike –bring to every action, every decision. Being an I Choose Freedom trustee has been so much more than I had ever imagined.

In her spare time Anastasia crochets (a lot) while watching films or listening to audiobooks.
