Oona Nanka-Bruce, branching out in Ethiopia

Originally from Ghana, Oona is a principal power systems engineer at WSP with more than 20 years’ experience in the industry.

Since graduating from the University of Sussex with a DPhil in control engineering, Oona has managed a multi-million dollar project to improve power infrastructure and deliver high-quality electricity service to the people of Addis Ababa in Ethiopia. At the same time, Oona opened and managed the consultancy’s new office in Ethiopia.

Oona said: “I have been blessed to have had supportive line managers throughout my career, who have challenged me to be the best I can be and helped me to improve on various aspects of my work. I was also supported when I wanted to further my education, broaden my skills and seek promotion at relevant points in my career. I think this stems from one’s positive attitude to work and willingness to go the extra mile when required.”
