Soyan joined PPL as an Analyst, after completing her studies and working as a researcher and business development executive.
Since joining PPL Soyan has been working on East Surrey’s response to the Fuller Stocktake report, which is focused on facilitating collaboration between multiple stakeholders to address the process and systemic challenges affecting primary care by finding solutions which improve access, quality and outcomes for local communities. She has also worked on launching the inPLACE shared awareness tool. The tool is designed to support London health and care partnerships to share thinking, align priorities, accelerate service integration and to help them reflect and agree on how they can align their work to maximise the benefits to the communities they serve. Additionally, Soyan has supported the diagnostic phase for a major Trust transformation project, engaging with key stakeholder to understand current working patterns and future work opportunities.
Prior to joining PPL, Soyan was involved in various projects focused on migration, entrepreneurship and leadership programmes, and European citizenship and intersectional solidarity awareness in different countries. She was a youth campaigner for the SEE-ME Modern Slavery campaign, where she delivered a speech in the House of Parliament to a wide variety of MPs, MEPs, academics, journalists and other experts to raise awareness and encourage change, and collaborated with youth activists to effectively direct future work on ending modern slavery and human trafficking.
Soyan has a specific interest in improving human wellbeing determinants in both developed and developing countries. She is a volunteer at Wonder Foundation where she continues to support their work to empower vulnerable women and their families through education and mentoring. She is also a volunteer at Alzheimer’s Disease International where she recently supported the delivery of the annual Alzheimer’s Association International Conference. Through this work, Soyan has seen the importance of collaborating with multidisciplinary stakeholders in devising innovative approaches that improve outcomes in a sustainable way. These experiences have solidified her drive to dedicate herself to tackling challenges aimed at human development.
Soyan holds a BA (Hons) in International Development from King’s College University of London.
