Imafidon honored with freedom of the City of London


By imafidons - Posted on 18 April 2019

Dr Anne-Marie Imafidon MBE is one of more than 100 women who will receive the Freedom of the City of London to commemorate the centenary of the Representation of the People Act 1918. 

The Court of Common Council, the City of London Corporation’s top decision-making body, has set the final seal of approval upon the Freedoms, paving the way for ceremonies to take place at Guildhall today. 

The nominees are drawn from a wide range of backgrounds, but all of them have a connection to the City. Dr Imafidon, former VP at Deutsche Bank and pupil of inner city Excellence In Education Programme, founded STEMettes an organisation which aims to encourage girls based in the City Of London. 

Last year, the City Corporation agreed to mark 100 years of female suffrage with the award of the Freedom by inviting members of the Court of Common Council and colleagues in their City of London Wards to nominate candidates.The Freedom of the City of London is believed to have begun in 1237 and enabled recipients to carry out their trade; and today, people are nominated for, or apply for, the Freedom, because it offers them a link with the historic City of London and one of its ancient traditions. 

 

The Freedom is also offered to individuals by the City of London Corporation to help celebrate a significant achievement or to pay tribute to their outstanding contribution to London life or public life.
