Video: ’10 Most’ Spotlights Tawana Tannock

February 1, 2017

The “10 Most Fascinating People of Bermuda 2016″ series continues today with the fifth video release featuring Tawana Tannock.

Host Lisa Pickering introduces Ms. Tannock by saying, “Tawana Tannock and helping people have always gone hand in hand.

“After holding careers as a high school teacher, probation officer, Crown counsel, and private sector lawyer, she was appointed Chairwoman to the Human Rights Commission in 2016, a plentiful year for human rights issues locally and globally.

“Tawana shares how her diverse experiences have given her the skills to help people battle the wrongs they feel they’ve faced.”

The video series is being sponsored by One and the Trades Women of Bermuda, with Ms Pickering’s clothing sponsored by Modblu Boutique.

We will continue to post their video releases here on Bernews over the coming days, and the “Most Fascinating Person of 2016″ will be revealed as the series concludes.

Bermuda has no shortage of interesting people, so if you want to suggest a candidate to Ms. Pickering for next year’s list, please feel free to email her at!

    Looking at the global situation, regarding human rights we are fortunate as a small jurisdiction to possess robust legislation. Thanks are due to advocates like Ms. Tannock and all the present and past members of the commission.

    Much has been done and there will always be the need to update and review. It was interesting to hear that we are ahead of other Overseas Territories with this legislation.

    A truly inspriational lady and such a great role model for young girls in Bermuda

    Wonderful interview! Thank you Tawana for your compassion, your integrity and for all that you are doing. You are such an inspiration!

  7. Shari-Lynn Pringle says:

    An excellent interview. Ms. Tannock is truly deserving of joining the #10MostFascinating club.

    I love her words about the failed referendum: “Even if this is not something I agree with, I understand that this is somebody else’s life and that I have no right to make a decision on what somebody else can do that doesn’t involve me.”

    Congratulations and thanks for all you and your Commissioners do. Welcome to the Club!
