It’s rare that you come across something as talented and passionate about their job as Leyla. I had the pleasure of working with Leyla for two years at Imperial College London, collaborating on an Equality and Diversity online course which Leyla wrote. I was particularly impressed by Leyla’s ability to deal with a range of internal and external stakeholders and showed real leadership in her team who clearly respected her for the experience she has in managing diversity, inclusion and equality practices. She did this with a positive and engaging attitude. Anyone working with Leyla would be lucky and will have a fantastic time.
