The World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) is pleased to announce the appointment of Amanda Hudson as WADA’s new Director of Education, effective 5 August 2019.
Ms. Hudson, who is currently Head of Education for UK Anti-Doping in London, will lead the development and implementation of WADA’s education strategy, programs and activities, including managing WADA’s Social Science Research Gant Program and the Agency’s Education Committee.
In October 2018, Director of Communications, Catherine MacLean, assumed leadership of the education portfolio and set out to recruit a Deputy Director of Education to help develop and drive WADA’s education strategy. Due to the quality of the applications received during the recruitment phase, management decided to upgrade the role to Director, carving education out as a stand-alone department with a seat at the management table. This optimized structure reflects the increasing importance with which WADA and its stakeholders view the areas of both education and communications to the Agency and the global anti-doping program.
