Short Description: 

My current work is focused on helping Graduates Interns and Apprentices to be themselves at work, teach them about digital skills while exploring existing internal communities to improve their connection within the organisation to explore new opportunities to maximise their full potential.
Accessibility, Diversity and (Digital) Inclusion are three important pillars for our organizations and since 2014 that I organise #axschat, the largest regular twitter chat on twitter on this topic. Our goal with #axschat is to create open conversations and break down the silos. Over the last 5 years, we have interviewed around 200 people on these subjects and generated approximately 4,5 billion impressions on Twitter.

NGI solution(s) used by your organisation: 

We actively work on initiatives that foster an inclusive web for everyone. People with disabilities are often forgotten when we talk about technology and policies and we want to prevent that from happening.
