Cpl Messam - Rising Star Allyship Award

Congratulations to Cpl Elloise Messam Who has been presented with a Diversity and Inculsion Rising Star award.Cpl Messam being presented with the Rising Star Award

The Rising Star award is presented to the individual who has most embodied the ideals of allyship, making a notable difference to the lived experience of others.

Working hard to address barriers to entering the service and redress misconceptions about military life, Cpl Messam tirelessly and selflessly created opportunities to share her experience with a wide and varied audience, many of whom have had little, if any, contact with the service.

Cpl Messam has represented the ethnic minorities network on numerous occasions, as well as taking responsible for the organisation of a Jamaican cultural event at RAF Wittering, which not only raised awareness of that communities’ military contribution across the decades but securing the presence of WW2 veteran Albert Jarrett, raising, improving, and integrating cultural awareness.
