Ai’s director, Ann Pettifor was invited by HRH Queen Rania of Jordan to join a task force (that met in both London and Amman, Jordan) that advised the Queen on a strategy for building bridges between women and children in the Middle East and the West. Subsequently Ms Pettifor was invited by the Queen to attend a conference in Jordan: “Mobilizing for Action” to turn the tide on maternal and newborn mortality and ensure that girls everywhere have access to education.
Ms Pettifor has also advised Prince Hassan bin Talal of Jordan, especially in relation to his leadership of the Forum on West Asia and North Africa (WANA) – an initiative which brings together different stakeholders from the region to find locally rooted solutions to the social, environmental and economic challenges of the region.
