Dr Karen Bill awarded EEUk Fellowship

Dr Karen Bill has been awarded a lifelong Fellowship of Enterprise Educators UK. Karen joined the Board of EEUK in 2013, was elected Vice-Chair in 2014 and went on to lead EEUK as Chair during academic year 2015/16.

One of the ways in which Karen made a really big difference was through her work to encourage everyone at EEUK to focus on impact – ensuring that we were not only increasing our impact for the benefit of our members but also measuring that impact. Karen initiated the EEUK impact infographic and her work has created a lasting legacy as the EEUK Board continues to ensure that everything it do has impact for members.

During her term as Chair, Karen increased EEUK’s international standing through contribution to a Sino/British Education forum in Tianjin, established regional directors, developed a strategic partnership with Microsoft and raised the profile of enterprise education through work with the HEA and publication of letters in Times Higher Education.

Dr Bill said, "I feel very humbled to accept this fellowship. It means such a lot to be recognised by such a dynamic, strategic and forward thinking organisation. It is a real privilege. For me, an organisation is defined by its community of practice. I have always witnessed a real warmth, friendship, support and empowerment of like minded colleagues who feverently champion ent ed.  I look forward to playing my part as a steadfast ambassador for EEUK. Sincere thanks to the Board."

EEUK’s current Chair, Dr Sarah Underwood said, “It’s fantastic to be able to recognise and thank Karen for all her work during her time on the EEUK board and for her leadership as Chair of the organisation. The best part of awarding Karen a Fellowship is that EEUK will continue to benefit from her experience and guidance for many years to come!

Fellowship of EEUK is granted, at the discretion of the Board, to those who have served as Directors for at least three years, two of which must have been as a member of the Executive Committee. The Fellows, whose details can be found here, all have a wealth of experience in the field of enterprise and entrepreneurship education and act in an advisory capacity to the Board, contributing actively to the aims and objectives of EEUK.
