Faisal Arif

D&I Adviser / Trainer

In his own words, Faisal is “excited by challenging and fast-paced environments”, which is one of the winning qualities he brings to his role as part of the Irish Centre for Diversity’s team of expert D&I trainers and advisors.

His engaging manner makes him adept at creating ‘safe space’ settings for the valuable conversations that educate by sharing and exploring the ‘lived experiences’ of D&I.

Faisal’s other attributes and skills have been honed from a wide range of professional experiences including lecturing Leaving Certificate-level students and other education roles as an English subject specialist.  Most recent experience includes coaching and consultation around Race Awareness, Race in the curriculum, LGBTQIA+ Awareness & Youth supports, Disability Awareness and more.

Faisal says he is a comic book fanatic and adores Marvel – predominantly the X-Men series.  He also enjoys getting immersed in Shakespeare, William Burroughs and 1950s era writing.
