BAWP appoints new national coordinator

Tuesday, 19 July, 2011

The British Association for Women in Policing (BAWP) has appointed its first police staff member to the full-time role of national coordinator. Parwinder Dale from the Metropolitan Police will start her new job on August 1, replacing Insp. Tracey Moynihan who returns to the Met after two years.

Parwinder brings to BAWP a wealth of experience in people management and diversity having spent the past six years in the Met's human resources department.

After graduating with a degree in politics and social policy from Brunel she joined The Office of the Deputy Prime Minister and then gained diversity experience working in the UK Trade and Investment organisation as a support officer.

Six years ago she took a temporary job in the Met, which became permanent. After two years Parwinder was promoted to a human resources officer managing a team of six handling absence and sickness leave for more than 1,000 police officers and police staff, as well as answering general HR enquiries.

Parwinder said: "BAWP is an organisation inclusive to all women and has representatives from many different forces, so by coming together collectively, they have a stronger voice to raise awareness of the issues they face in the police service every day.

"BAWP is also appealing and inspirational to me as it provides a platform for women to overcome the hurdles they face and help progress forward in their roles. I'm really looking forward to it."
