Mosaic would like to congratulate Mosaic Advisory Board Member Bushra Nasir CBE for being selected as a finalist in the BAME 100 Board Talent Index (2017). The index details 100 of the most prominent BAME leaders from across the Private, Public and Third sectors, as identified and finalised by an expert panel of judges. Bushra received this prestigious accolade in recognition of her work on the Mosaic Advisory Board.
Bushra Nasir CBE was the first Muslim female headteacher of a secondary school in the UK, with 20 years’ experience at Plashet School in the London Borough of Newham.

In addition, she was awarded the TES Headteacher of the Year in 2012. Alongside her work on the Mosaic Advisory Board she is also a Council Member of Queen Mary, University of London.
