Reflecting Diversity Role Model (“DRM”) growth in profile over the last 12 months and in preparation for the next stage in our journey, DRM is pleased to announce three new additions to the DRM family.
Lana Peswani – Administration Assistant
Lana will join DRM in September. She comes with a breadth of experience both in the voluntary sector and in working for and within the LGBT+ community.
Chloë Davies – Relationship and Experience lead
Chloë is joining us following a highly successful career in relationship and events management. She has grown her own successful catering business and has been crucial in developing community engagement with Pride in London. Her excellent track record alongside her passion for inclusive education from a parent perspective will add real value to the team. Chloe will start her role in September and will be responsible for developing engagement strategy for all of DRM’s stakeholders.
Adam McCann - Deputy CEO
Adam McCann is currently Diversity and Inclusion Manager, UK, US and EMEA at global law firm Herbert Smith Freehills and brings a depth of organisation leadership experience to the role. In 2013, he began volunteering with DRM and later became a secondary and primary school role model. His long term relationship with the charity positions him with a thorough understanding of DRM and our work. His skillset will really strengthen our capability and help us continue to grow and develop. He will focus on DRM’s growth strategy including looking at intersectionality within the LGBT community as well as wider access in the regions and in the online presence.
On his appointment, Adam McCann commented "I am thrilled to be joining a fantastic team and organisation that embraces diversity and inclusion to improve the lives of young people across the UK. I am really looking forward to having a role in shaping the future of DRM."
Claire Harvey, CEO says “I am so excited to welcome Adam, Chloe and Lana to the team. All three bring a new set of ideas and energy that will really compliment the already excellent team, and I am confident this will enable us to move to the next level."
