"As a black professional, my race has been my greatest challenge over the years. I encountered overt racism in my early career and I have struggled to be recognised by some employers for the contribution I bring to my work. I believe in perseverance, being the best you can be and always striving to do better. In the end, sheer determination to succeed has paid off.
I am now a Partner at Arcadis and am proud to be one of the Race Workstream Sponsors, helping to create an inclusive environment for our employees. It is important to inspire the next generation, which is why I actively mentor many young talented people across the business.
I am what I am because of the struggles throughout my early years. More than ever, I believe it is critical we learn the lessons of the past, celebrate what we have in common and not allow our differences to divide us."
