We are very pleased to announce that RTP Founder & CEO, Omar Salha has been appointed as a fellow of the Royal Society for the encouragement of Arts, Manufactures and Commerce – commonly known as the Royal Society of the Arts or RSA.
The RSA is an organisation which seeks to find practical solutions to some of the world’s most challenging social problems.
The Fellowship is a global network of 29,000 people who support the RSA’s mission to enrich society through ideas and action which is a great opportunity for RTP to continue our work with the access to a powerful network and build upon our successes!
Reacting to the news, Omar said : “I am extremely honoured to be appointed a Fellow of the RSA. It is a privilege to be a member of such a respected society, whose commitment to finding practical solutions for contemporary social issues is one I share and strive towards”.
Omar is a PhD Nouhoudh Scholar at SOAS University of London with his research focusing on the Integration of Muslims in British Society. Additionally, he has worked for a number of community projects – most recently being one of the first respondents to the tragic Grenfell Tower Fire and played a role in the Grenfell Muslim Response Unit.
