Dr Chioma Nwafor serves as the Executive Director of DAWSUN (Diaspora African Women's Support Network CIC), Glasgow. She has worked in the voluntary sector for over 15 years and is passionate about issues that affect women, family and Africa.

Chioma has demonstrated a record of excellence which has contributed to the furtherance of knowledge in her area of expertise and activity. Her ability to inspire others is reflected in the various academic and professional leadership positions she has held, and continues to keep within her current position.

It was Chioma’s influence on the broader community that led to the establishment of DAWSUN in November of 2018. DAWSUN was formed to bridge the paucity of research gap within the BAME third-sector landscape in Scotland.
