Wishing a warm welcome to Hannah Davies Senior Communications Advisor, WaterAid and Ambassador to NoTurningBack2020
Here Hannah shares her reasons for getting involved in NoTurningBack2020
I’m still early into my career, but I’m keen to share everything I’ve learnt to date. And particularly in relation to working across the international development / climate change / sustainability sectors. I left school thinking that I wanted to “help people” and “change the world” but with little idea of how to go about it. I’ve done a mixture of sustainability-related roles across the public, private and charity sectors. I’d love to share everything I’ve learnt from these positions and the types of enriching experiences I’ve been able to have (which even included beekeeping at Toyota!)
Engaging and celebrating diversity
I’ve seen so much value in working with global teams, from diverse cultures and backgrounds. Particularly in the realm of sustainability and climate change, I feel that it’s those fresh perspectives that push forward the agenda and direct the work to the places it’s most needed. Being an ambassador with NTB2020 will be an opportunity to engage with, and celebrate, those perspectives and backgrounds.
My career choices to date have naturally revolved around people – I want to do work that’s engaging, empowering and impactful. That’s why I’ve done roles and worked for organisations where there’s always been an element of “doing good”. And I think that people-focus is the backbone of EDI – listening to people, hearing and sharing their stories, giving them the voice, visibility and tools to drive change where it needs to happen.
