Hi there, I am Rosa and last week I started working at IARS as the new Projects Coordinator for our Equalities area. I am very eager to be starting on this role as I will be coordinating very interesting projects that bridges areas that I am not only truly passionate about but can also very much relate to through my personal experiences - areas which I also have dedicated myself professionally in the past years.
When I joined IARS last summer it represented a long over due step in my career moving from project delivery and management into a more research based academic career. For the past 15 years I had spent my working life working on and managing projects that supported some of the most marginalised groups in the UK.
