I am a Landscape Consultant working at Arcadis UK for more than a year. Previously, I have represented the LGBTQIA+ community, as a landscape architecture student, where I was on a panel with professionals from the construction industry speaking about being queer in their respective professions.
I am also passionate about creating work environments safe for all people, regardless of social identifiers, and am involved in many initiatives celebrating diversity and inclusion within Arcadis. To me, safety also means ensuring people are taking care of their mental health, which can be helped by educating people on how to support marginalised groups, such as the LGBTQIA+ community.
Creating better allyship can lead to better environments – physical, mental, and emotional – and I want to help the people in my life strengthen their knowledge to support our community fruitfully.
