I was recently appointed as the Equalities Delivery Manager (EDM) for the IOPC and am very excited by the possibilities for change in this role. This position will give me a lead role in shaping our BAME policies and an even stronger platform to be a positive example to those from my cultural background. I am now part of our People directorate, based in the Organisational Design, Development and Talent team, and will be working alongside those responsible for the recruitment, retention and progression of our staff. This will allow me to embed positive action initiatives throughout our recruitment practices.

Being the EDM will give me the tools to help the development of BAME colleagues in our organisation, in the way that l have been encouraged by senior colleagues. I have always strived to support the development of my colleagues throughout my time in the IOPC and the IPCC before that, and have been nominated for multiple awards for the work that l have done in this area. The past couple of years have boosted my belief in what l can achieve in the organisation and l relish the opportunity to be a role model for other minority staff in the IOPC.
