Hogan Lovells' International Pro Bono Manager Named Vice-Chairman of Mosaic
30 May 2012
LONDON, 30 May 2012 - Hogan Lovells' international pro bono manager, Yasmin Waljee OBE, has been named vice-chairman of Mosaic, an initiative championed by Muslims which aims to raise the aspirations of young people from disadvantaged backgrounds.
Yasmin will succeed HRH Princess Badiya bint el Hassan, who stood down from her role after three years. Yasmin will be joined by Khawar Mann, a partner at Apax Partners, who has taken on the role of chairman of the charity.
Hogan Lovells has been involved with Mosaic since it was first established in 2009. Yasmin has served on the Mosaic UK Advisory Board since its inception and she is co-chair of the London Region of Mosaic.
Mosaic helps successful British Muslims to give back to the community by bringing them together with young Muslims in disadvantaged communities, enabling them to act as positive role models and mentors. Yasmin has been instrumental in the creation and success of Mosaic, from its start as a modest mentoring programme in a single school in London to what it is now - multiple initiatives across six regions of the UK and with affiliated networks in 18 countries overseas.
"I am enormously proud to be given this role. Mosaic's success is attributable to the collaborative and inspiring colleagues with whom I work and the dedication of the people who give their time so freely to be mentors and supporters.
"Mosaic's impact in such a short timeframe is impressive – it now reaches over 2,000 young people every year and mobilises almost 1,000 volunteers. That legacy is in no small part attributable to Princess Badiya's energy and dedication to the project."
