I am the Global Programme Manager for Community Engagement at Arup. Through this programme we annually deliver over 160 projects across more than 40 countries, bringing together our technical and strategic capabilities to deliver meaningful projects for underserved communities. I bring to this role my experience leading multidisciplinary teams in the UK public sector, focused on addressing issues of equity, public safety, safeguarding, and access to services. 

Ensuring marginalised communities are heard and encouraged to have an active role in the design and implementation of projects is extremely important to me. Being in the position to advocate for this through our Community Engagement projects is a privilege and I am very proud to be part of an employee-owned organisation committed to enabling its members to contribute in this way.
