About Nesta

Nesta is an innovation foundation. For us, innovation means turning bold ideas into reality and changing lives for the better. We use our expertise, skills and funding in areas where there are big challenges facing society.

Monique works as a communications coordinator, helping to deliver Nesta's mission by supporting its digital content creation and strategy.

Before Nesta, Monique worked as an administration assistant for Atelier Studios, where she provided administrative support across different departments and oversaw social media management for its social channels. She also worked as a freelance virtual assistant, extending general administration and social media content curation to Black and minority ethnic businesses.

Monique studied international relations at Keele University and alongside this was highly involved in student-led grassroots activism that focussed on promoting antiracism, decolonised perspectives and intersectional feminism within the curricula and institution overall.

Outside of work, she is most likely listening to podcasts, trying new recipes or watching video essays on fashion/pop culture.
