RTPI member wins Scottish Asian Woman of the Future award

12 March 2013

IramIram Mohammed, Chair of the Scottish Young Planners' Network and Vice Chair of the Membership and Ethics Committee, has been named the inaugural Scottish Asian Woman of the Future at the Scottish Asian Women Association (SAWA) awards.

The SAWA was launched in April last year by First Minister Alex Salmond and is supported by HRH Princess Badiya bint El Hassan of Jordan. It aims to establish and develop a network of Scottish Asian Woman from all professions, fields and disciplines drawing upon a wealth of leadership skills, innovation and knowledge with a view to enhancing their own personal and professional development and assisting those women in need of support, guidance and mentoring.

Iram said: "It was a real privilege to be nominated along with some really inspiring women and to win is such an honour. To be given the opportunity to represent the town planning profession and help promote the work of planners is brilliant. I hope it inspires other young Asian women to join this vibrant and changing profession."

"The awards are a fantastic showcase of the phenomenally talented Asian women in Scotland today, and I encourage you to get involved in this year's campaign," says Sitara Kausar, Trustee of The Scottish Asian Women's Association.
