Letícia Ishibashi appointed as Head of Programme – Migration

Published: 11 July 2022 
We are pleased to announce that Letícia Ishibashi will join Paul Hamlyn Foundation as Head of Programme – Migration from September. 

Letícia brings over seven years’ experience in migrants’ rights roles, including at FLEX, Migrants’ Rights Network and the Greater London Authority, which have allowed her to develop a deep understanding of the UK’s immigration system, its historical foundations and how migration fits within wider political agendas and social justice movements.

Moira Sinclair, Chief Executive, Paul Hamlyn Foundation said: Letícia is a values-led leader with learned and lived experience of the systems and issues where we want to see change. She is committed to establishing more open, diverse and inclusive collaboration, proactively identifying which communities, perspectives and issues are not represented in decision-making spaces. That mix of skills and expertise will be of real value to our work as a grant-maker.”

I am pleased to be joining Paul Hamlyn Foundation at such a critical time. I value the Foundation’s commitment to becoming an anti-racist organisation, and its dedication to addressing power imbalances in grant-making. I am looking forward to working with my new colleagues, partners and across social justice movements to achieve meaningful change for migrants.”
