IMI welcomes new Trustees

IMI is very pleased to welcome three new Trustees to our Board: Janu Miah, Daniel Abdul-Raheem Diaz and Asma Bhol.

Janu is an organisational development professional and has more than a decade of experience in the charity sector developing people, culture, leadership, strategy and best practice. She has worked across the private, arts and voluntary sector and has been a trustee on several boards. Her area of focus is campaigning, social justice and advocacy. Janu is a facilitator, leadership coach, mediator and behaviour specialist.

Raheem is a freelance access consultant, speaker and advocate, and is currently training in inclusive design. He has been involved in community organising for over 6 years, and fundraising within and outside of the third sector. Raheem is a revert with an interest in different Islamic spiritual traditions, and in the role pluralisms can have in building a truly unified ummah today. He is particularly passionate about disability justice and wealth redistribution as core Islamic values.

Asma is an Independent Occupational Therapist who specialises in paediatrics, neuro-disability/diversity and sensory integration. Asma believes humans to be functional beings through occupation and independence, using a holistic approach whilst honouring the impact of trauma and the power of the person’s spirit. Asma runs These Hands Can, a project that renovates and repairs homes for marginalised individuals and communities, and is a trustee for Women and Girls Network. Asma loves to adventure and explore, and enjoys anything that involves laughter and play.

Janu, Raheem, and Asma join our existing Trustees in working to shape IMI’s future and how we operate as a charity. We’re so excited to have them on board and we’re honoured that they’re sharing their expertise to guide our organisation as we continue our community and inclusion work.
