GOC seeks new Council associates

The GOC was seeking to appoint its third cohort of Council associates, including a dispensing optician, to join current associates Deepali Modha and Jamie Douglas.

The two appointees would attend all Council meetings and be encouraged to get involved in debate and gain governance experience through the audit, risk and finance committee.

They would also be supported throughout their term by development workshops, post-meeting check-ins with their dedicated mentor and ongoing assistance from the governance team.

Launched in 2021, the associate role was created to bring new perspectives to Council meetings and to give board/panel experience, development and training to early career professionals.

Outgoing associate Rukaiya Anwar said: ‘Since joining the GOC as a Council associate in 2021, I have been encouraged and supported to contribute to discussions within a safe and welcoming space. Equally, all input by colleagues is considered and thoughts are respected and valued, allowing for collective decision-making.’
