My story

[p]Some of you know me as Harriet, Internal Communications at Sky, the curator of CommsOverCoffee.com or the one who is always tweeting about podcasts. I love my job and am blessed to do what I dreamed about as a child. I was designing Ads, reporting live and writing all from our home in South London. But for many BAME practitioners that want to pursue a career in communications, PR or marketing this isn’t a reality. [/p][p]Earlier this year I wrote a blog post for Comms2Point0 asking for more Ellen’s in the industry. Now, this is my time to be an ‘Ellen’. I promised to pave the way and use my connections to start an open impactful dialogue that embraces difference, step out of my comfort zone to be a visible example of what is possible and share my story to challenge prejudices. Being asked to run for the Taylor Bennett Foundation is an honour because through your generous giving an opportunity will be created for someone else to follow their passion and find their place in the Public Relations and communications industry. [/p][p] "The only thing that separates women of colour from anyone else is opportunity." —Viola Davis during her speech at 67th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards[/p][p]This is my first half marathon, so please share your tips, hints, tricks and words of encouragement. [/p][p]Thank you so much. [/p][p][br][/p][p]Harriet [/p][p][br][/p][p]Virgin Money Giving is a not for profit organisation and will claim gift aid on a charity's behalf where the donor is eligible for this. [/p][p][br][/p][p]I really appreciate all your support and thank you for any donations.[/p][p][br][/p]
