All eyes on Carina

11th June 2021

We're delighted to announce that Carina Ealam, who many of you will know from your work with Acumen's Qualitative team has been shortlisted for the prestigious Parker Prize for Emerging Talent.

The award is organised by the Association of Qualitative Researchers (AQR) which seeks to recognise anyone working within the research industry who has a passion for their work and consistently delivers results with flair, innovation and a job done brilliantly.

Carina has certainly made her mark at Acumen; joining the company as part of her work experience for her Anthropology degree before returning to the company in a full time role as a Qualitative project manager; earning high praise amongst many of our clients.

Ken Parker, after whom the prize is named, was passionate about helping young people develop their passions so we'd like the fund to be put towards personal development. Think conferences, courses, talks, learning a new language, developing a new skill, or trying a new experience, from Semiotics to sky-diving. The fund will be held by the AQR secretariat and can be allocated to one or multiple courses or experiences (up to the value of £1,000) over the course of the year.

We'll be keeping everything crossed for Carina while the judges deliberate over all 6 candidates up for this year's prize. And while the winner of the Parker Prize will be announced on the 30th of June, we've long since known that Carina is a winner with both her colleagues and our clients.
