The first recipient of The Alma Award is Manal Jacob.
Manal receives the award for her extensive communication work with immigrant women from different ethnic and religious groups. However, she also receives it for challenging the conventional idea that leaders of major integration projects often are ethnic Danes.
Manal has the best experiences, she is innovative and shows a committed effort, which hopefully will inspire other immigrant women to join the debate and the society.
Manal has earned the award for her great work as project manager, where she with commitment, high spirit, helpfulness, skills and courage has been a cornerstone for the catering association “Ishtar – The Ethnic Feminists” (in Danish “Ishtar – De Etniske Rødstrømper”), which has developed into a socio-economic company.
Manal is a fiery soul in every way. She has the strength and enthusiasm to convince politicians, sponsors and companies of how important it is to focus on immigrant women’s resources and experiences.
