In June our fantastic Chief Executive, Sonia Watson, was awarded an OBE in recognition of her work improving diversity in the Architecture sector and supporting aspiring Black and minority ethnic architects to succeed.

Watch Sonia’s interview with the cabinet office below to see what receiving an OBE means to her and for the Stephen Lawrence Charitable Trust.

The honour follows her incredible effort completing the Virgin Money London Marathon in April, raising over £14,000 to support young people from disadvantaged and under-represented backgrounds in realising their dreams, as well as the highly successful inaugural Stephen Lawrence Day, which celebrated Stephen’s life and legacy, and inspired young people across the country to make positive choices and to live their best lives.

We are all immensely proud of Sonia for this well-deserved and timely award, and look forward to seeing what the rest of the year will bring
