Hear from Rebecca Dilworth, Encirc

Meet Rebecca and Nagore from Encirc. They dive into what Encric has done to drive change and be more inclusive, what a future that is inclusive, diverse and equitable looks like to them and what women inspire them most. 

 

Rebecca Dilworth, Communications & PR Executive, Encirc

 

Rebecca Dilworth shares what her organisation is doing to be more inclusive and drive change and what a diverse and inclusive future means to her.

What have you/your organisation done to be more inclusive and drive change?

Encirc have partnered with The Girls Network, a fantastic organisation that provides female mentors to girls aged 14-19 around the UK. As a member of our 2021 cohort, I spend an hour a month with my mentee, leading sessions around her future aspirations, confidence, self-worth, mental wellbeing and much more. Providing young girls with role models and encouraging them to reach the goals they have set for themselves is extremely rewarding and will hopefully create positive change for future generations!

What would an international future that is diverse, equitable and inclusive mean to you?

It would mean feeling comfortable taking up space. It would mean walking home without fear. It would mean new opportunities. It would mean not worrying about raising my son and how the current societal norms may impact his views in comparison. It would mean so much to so many. 

Which woman do you think lives these values and inspires you?

Author and body image advocate Stephanie Yeboah. Stephanie creates content that evokes feeling, that allows people to breathe in their own skin and stop questioning their worth. She doesn’t shy away from taboo or tricky topics, and she is heartbreakingly honest about her struggles with self-love and mental health. Stephanie’s work around diversity and racism, particularly from her lived experiences as a Black woman, is hard-hitting and will, I hope, be a catalyst for change.

Nagore Etxebarria–Prieto, Head of Warehouse Operations, Encirc

 

What would an international future that is diverse, equitable and inclusive mean to you?

For me, an inclusive and diverse future means that every person feels comfortable and safe being themselves and sharing their day to day without being afraid of being attacked or discriminated against because of it.
That every person is considered and given the same opportunities no matter what their gender identity, sexual orientation, race, religion, or ethnicity are.

Which woman do you think lives these values and inspires you?
Ruth Bader Ginsburg
