Lady Gilda Levy

Chair and Co-Founder
Gilda Levy was born in London, the daughter of Jewish immigrant parents who came to Britain from Vienna to escape Nazi persecution. She qualified as a teacher of English and drama and spent many years as a governor of a local primary school and teaching children with learning disabilities. Gilda also worked in a residential home for younger disabled people, running a literary and drama discussion group, in a voluntary capacity. Gilda says, “My family history had a deep impact on me and I have always felt that bigotry and prejudice are the greatest evil. WIN is my way of trying to combat these and by bringing communities together make a more respectful and humane society”. Gilda is a trustee of the UK Friends of the Bereaved Family Forum, an organisation of Israelis and Palestinians who have lost loved ones through violence. Of this work, Gilda says "These incredibly brave people have come together to share their grief and to work towards a peaceful and better future for both sides".
