I am currently the Head of UK & People at the ISC Group. The role is vast and encompasses a wide range of tasks. I design and oversee the UK Networking and DEI events at all levels across the group, as well as overseeing a team of event assistants in the UK.

I work closely with over 25 clients to create a comprehensive diversity and inclusion strategy aligning with their overall goals and objectives. I also create bespoke workshops alongside their Employee Resource Groups to provide a platform for their underrepresented employees. I continuously collect and analyse data to evaluate the effectiveness of diversity and inclusion initiatives and adjust the programme as needed. I am used to working in a fast paced and busy working environment and believe that the culture and atmosphere is extremely important. I am a positive person which enables me to flourish through any situation, no matter what gets thrown at me!

I am incredibly passionate about helping others and have learnt a lot in my current career. One of my main motivations for wanting to work in the DEI field is that it greatly aligns with my own personal values and beliefs (such as, equality, empathy and allyship) which are what drives my passion for the DEI field. Not only that, but it can be incredibly rewarding having a direct impact on people's lives.

There is a real lack of diverse representation in the workplace, especially in leadership positions, which can make it difficult for underrepresented groups to see a clear career path for their own development. This lack of diversity can commonly be down to issues such as, unconscious bias, discrimination or an organisations resistance to change which can interfere with their ability to make inclusive decisions. This also contributes to the gender pay gap which is still common across many industries, resulting in unequal pay for people doing the same job. I believe that to start improving your workplace, begin with creating an inclusive culture where everyone feels valued, respected, and empowered to contribute their talents. I strongly believe that with an inclusive environment the results and targets of the business can be most effective.
