Following Celia’s revamp of the Capital Associates of African Descent (CAAD) European network, membership has doubled to 86 associates. Celia and the core team both provide educational material on diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) and run events promoting DEI. ‘Racism: A European Lens’, an event she instigated, brought together 250 Europe-based associates to share first-hand their experiences of racism. For Black History Month 2020, alongside the core team, Celia compiled a programme with guests including Professor David Olusoga, attracting 750 attendees. She also moderated a DEI panel event featuring John Amaechi in December 2020. Outside Capital Group, Celia is a Corporate Advisor on the Advisory Board for Cowrie Scholarship Foundation, which aims to fund disadvantaged Black British students through UK universities. Separately, alongside a former classmate, she has pioneered a mentoring scheme at her secondary school to provide practical educational support, empowerment and positive representation for African and Caribbean-descent students.
