Naeema Sajid, Diversity+

Naeema studied a SNC in business studies and later a HND in legal studies before enrolling to study the LLB at the university of Edinburgh, with a toddler in tow.

She completed her law degree with 2 young children and escaped academia for a short period to build up much needed work experience. Her role as a parliamentary researcher, and later an advisor, within the reconvened Scottish Parliament in 1999, further whet her appetite to serve the people of Scotland.

Naeema has over 20 years of experience in the Scottish legal sector. She commenced her career as a Procurator Fiscal and later moved to the private sector where she specialised in child and family law and became a partner of a top ten Scottish law firm.

Naeema is an avid campaigner for diversity, equality and inclusion and uses her lived experience, skills and knowledge to navigate positive change to workplace cultures and business strategies. With that aim in mind, Naeema created Diversity+, a bespoke consultancy firm designed to assist organisations, specifically within the legal and financial sector make improvements in their diversity and inclusion footprint, both internally and externally, thereby better meeting the needs of their stakeholders.

Naeema is also a co-founder of The Scottish Ethnic Minorities Lawyers Association. An organisation aimed at improving ethnic minority representation within the Scottish legal profession, at all levels.
