Sharon is integral to the implementation of the National Policy for Gender Equality as well as coordinating the qualitative dimensions of social policy and action research.

Her experience in the cross-cutting discipline of gender and development studies significantly impacts her involvement in the implementation of the National Strategic Action Plan to Eliminate Gender-based Violence in Jamaica (NSAP-GBV) 2017-2027 to support Jamaica’s Minister of Gender Affairs.

As focal point for the Gender Division, Sharon represents the Ministry through ‘nuanced’ participation in several fora to ensure the seamless integration of gender in national policies, plans, programmes and projects.

A transformational leader, trainer/coach and facilitator, she engages key publics through strategic and sustainable collaboration/partnership towards the achievement of gender equality and women’s empowerment in keeping with the Ministry’s Gender Mainstreaming Mandate.


We place people at the heart of everything we do.

We believe that culture is the great equaliser and transformer that makes ordinary men and women great.

We believe that gender equality is essential in a modern society.

We believe that an entertained person is a happy person and happy persons make happy societies.

We believe that physical activity enhances lives and sport is the medicine that heals and corrects.
