Lady Hannah Lowy Mitchell

Lady Hannah Lowy Mitchell is a member of the Board of Trustees of Women for Women International, and is also Chair of its Policy Working Group. Each year Hannah and her husband Lord Mitchell host a lunch in honour of Women for Women International at the River Room at the House of Lords; this is a key event in the calendar and has become a major catalyst for creating awareness amongst powerful opinion formers as well as a proven opportunity for raising significant funding.

Hannah is a documentary film-maker by profession. She has made films for Danish TV, Channel 4 and BBC2. For the past 20 years she has worked primarily in the not-for profit sector. She chairs her family trust (The Lowy Mitchell Foundation), which supports educational charities and a wide variety of cultural institutions. Hannah has twin sons of 24, both of whom are also active supporters of Women for Women International.
