A Fond Farewell

Posted: 18 June 2014

Disabled People’s Association (DPA) would like to inform you that Nina Munday, DPA Diversity and Inclusion Consultant, and Alvan Yap, DPA Advocacy Executive, are leaving the team for various reasons. 

After a few years working in Singapore Nina is returning to Scotland with her husband to be closer to her family. She intends to continue to collaborate with DPA on ad hoc projects even though we are sure she will be busy with Diversity and Inclusion consultancy work back in Scotland. If you want to keep in touch with her you can find her on LinkedIn by searching for Nina Munday. 

Alvan is moving on to be Deputy Director of SADeaf, a partner in the mission to make Singapore a more inclusive society for persons with disabilities. He intends to continue working with DPA as a member and volunteer and I am sure you will see him at DPA events in the future. 

Even though DPA is sad to part with two of our valuable team members we wish them all the best and look forward to seeing the exciting things that they will achieve in their next roles.
