Who are we?

Ethnic Minority Welsh Women Achievement Association (EMWWAA) formerly known as the Welsh Asian Women Achievement Award (WAWAA) is a charitable organisation. It aims to create a network of women and girls of ethnic minority origin in Wales to provide beacons of inspiration for current and upcoming generations.

EMWWAA's aim is to empower and inspire women and girls of ethnic minorities in Wales through recognition of their contributions. We aim to identify role models for communities and facilitate community cohesion and integration with the mainstream systems. 

EMWWAA is able to recognise and celebrate the achievements of women of ethnic origin by organizing a bi-annual awards ceremony. EMWWAA profiles the achievements of women who are at multiple disadvantages. Not only are they women, but they are also ethnic minority women who have faced barriers of language, culture, appearance, and religion. EMWWAA seeks to make visible how these women have made significant contributions to Wales and to Welsh life and how they have used their talent to help and inspire others.

EMWWAA proudly works in partnership with, Cardiff University, Cardiff Sixth Form College, EYST, Art Council of Wales, Women's Equality Network WalesChwarae Teg, BAWSO, Race Equality First, Women Connect First, Race Council Cymru, C3SC (Cardiff Third Sector Council), NWAMIOur international international collaborator is Aspire For Her (aspireforher.org).

Our tribute to the White Ribbon Ambassadors in Wales

"It is not for women to modify their behaviour but for abusers to change theirs, with perpetrators of violence held to account."
