About us section
Femaura was founded in December 2008 by CEO, Pam (BA Hons) and Co-founder and Director, Yi (BA Hons). Being Deaf, they both have first hand experience of the barriers Deaf people face in their daily lives with communication and have a full understanding of how vital it is that different communities are able to interact, communicate, express and pass on information between each other. This is where the need for a Social Enterprise was established and Femaura was born. The name Femaura was created by the CEO Pam. She felt that nobody should be left out and inclusivity should be represented within the name of the company, as this is something close to her heart. So with that in mind, she created the term FEMAURA, meaning ‘Fe’ (female)-‘ma’ (male) – ‘aura’.
