We are delighted to welcome two new trustees to the Maths on Toast board to help support us in our mission to make every family feel positive, empowered and inspired about maths.
The new trustees are Dami Solebo and Sarah Watzek.
Dami Solebo is the Business Director at charity Finding Rhythms, overseeing fundraising, programme development and partnerships. Dami has overseen the growth of youth charities and brings this expertise to Maths on Toast. He is passionate about increasing social mobility opportunities through education to create a level playing field for the marginalised and disadvantaged.
Sarah Watzek studied Psychology and Computing at University and now works at an artificial intelligence research company in Human Resources. Prior to that she spent a decade in the charity sector with the British Heart Foundation and Teach First. She is fascinated by science and believes in the importance of STEM education because our world depends on it, now more than ever. She believes in helping people to reach their potential by removing barriers and providing access to opportunities.
Maths on Toast’s CEO Lucy Davis says:
“Since 2012, Maths on Toast has grown from a pop-up event in an old shop to a well-established and respected maths charity with a unique approach. Sarah and Dami bring fresh eyes, insight and expertise to the board. We all look forward to a further journey of sustainable growth bringing playful, accessible, creative maths to families across the UK.”
Maths on Toast Trustee Alison Clark-Wilson says:
“We are delighted to welcome Sarah and Dami to the Board of Trustees of Maths on Toast. As our charity goes from strength to strength, we will benefit greatly from their experiences and insights to help us to widen our reach and achieve even greater impacts. In particular, their respective experiences within fast-growth enterprises will help us with both our systems, structures and fundraising.”
