Introducing our D&I Committee…Rhona
We’re delighted to be introducing the Gravitas Diversity & Inclusion Committee. This exciting new body will champion all things related to diversity, inclusion and equality at Gravitas and beyond.
Every week we’ll be profiling a different member of the committee. First up, it’s our committee chair, Rhona!
NAME: RHONA WILLIAMS
JOB TITLE: TALENT ACQUISITION CONSULTANT
Which important date in the calendar am I looking forward to acknowledging & celebrating over the coming year?
I would love to know far more about other religions, so Diwali, Eid and Hannukah would be super exciting to know more about when they come!
Why am I passionate about Diversity & Inclusion?
“I come from a dual heritage background (Trinidadian and Scottish) and grew up in an extremely white community where my family and I were often subject to questionable language and treatment.
We were brought up in a way to celebrate our heritage and educate others about it, so from that stand point I’ve always been passionate about helping others celebrate & understand different backgrounds.”
Why is it important for Gravitas to focus on Diversity & Inclusion?
“It would be mad not to! In the point of history that we are in at the moment, we all think that we are forward thinking and inclusive – but are we really? There’s always more to be done, that needs to be focused on for the right reasons, rather than to just tick a box.
We’re definitely in a new civil rights era, so it’s a priority to focus on in the workplace.”
Join us next time as we profile another member of our Diversity & Inclusion Committee!
