Reflecting on her appointment as a Visiting Fellow, Nelly said:
I am thrilled to be appointed as a Visiting Fellow to support NTU’s School of Architecture, Design and Built Environment’s ED&I initiatives. Attracting and retaining diverse talent and creating inclusive environments in the construction industry is of utmost importance to our industry and the best way to achieve this is to address it in all parts of the ecosystem including our educational institutions. I am really looking forward to bringing my knowledge and expertise to the benefit of the students and faculty of ADBE as they continue on this journey.
Deputy Dean and Chair of the EDI committee, Richard Bull commented:
We’re really excited about this appointment. ADBE is committed to tackling the injustice of racial inequality and lack of diversity in the construction and built environment sector. Nelly brings a passion and lived experience to these issues as well as a wealth of professional experience in change management around EDI. I believe that together we can make a real difference to both our students and staff as well as the wider sector.
