During her time at the Ministry of Justice, Hafsa worked in recruitment support for Her Majesty's Courts and Tribunals Service in Birmingham.
Hafsa was very active in the Midlands subgroup of the department’s LGBT network, Spirit. This included helping to organise an event for Bi Visibility Day in the region and speaking on the panel, and arranging the MoJ presence at Birmingham Pride. Hafsa was also an ally of a:gender, the cross Civil Service trans network.
In September 2018, Hafsa featured in a department-wide campaign promoting its values and how she exemplified the value of ‘humanity’. Following this she shared the stage alongside senior leaders to speak about diversity and inclusion and her experiences as a BAME, LGBT Muslim woman as well as someone who has a disability.
In January 2019, Hafsa was given the Stonewall Bi Role Model of the Year award.
In November 2019, Hafsa joined Stonewall as a client account manager.
