What do you enjoy about your role at Inclusive Employers?

What I enjoy most is creating content that is inclusive, accessible and impactful. I love being able to make a difference and share my passion to make inclusion a reality for our members and pushing that forward. Every day brings a different task, which keeps my role interesting! It brings a sense of fulfilment, being able to share my views, lived experiences and ideas to various industries.

What has been your biggest achievement to date?

My master’s degree has definitely been my biggest achievement and being able to study Human Resources Management and learn more about inclusion and diversity. Taking this degree helped me to realise my passion and allowed me to focus on equity, diversity and inclusion. Getting to that realisation brought me to Inclusive Employers and enabled a lot of growth and initiative.

What is the best advice you have ever been given?

“Never settle for anything less and never give up – been brought too far to think of failure or stopping something innovative prematurely. The idea that you have could very well be the answer or answers to someone else’s prayer. Keep pushing.”

Aside from speaking English, I also speak Twi (a Ghanaian language) quite fluently.
