Seven questions with… Stevie Williams, Inclusion Lead.
It’s time to get to know the Touch Network team! Stevie takes the lead on everything to do with inclusion, making sure that our community is welcoming and accessible to all.
Can you tell me the weirdest thing you believed as a child?
I believed that I could be a cow when I grew up.
What’s your job title at Touch, and how long have you worked here?
Inclusion lead and I have worked here since May 10th.
What does a day in your job look like?
A day in the job of inclusion lead involves different aspects depending on the needs of the organisation coming up.
I check my inbox, I reply or decide which email need urgent replies, I create a list of objectives and tasks for the day and check in with my quarterly milestones and see what still needs to be done.
I then will either sit down and crack on typing away or head out with an event champ to meetings, venue, scouting and inclusion connections.
It’s Monday morning (or whenever your working week starts!) – what makes you excited to get out of bed?
Other than my young son and daughter who get me out of bed! I get excited about trying to make a difference in inclusion for Touch.
What helps you when you’re having a bad day?
When I’m having stressful or difficult time, I like to take a moment and exercise or connect with my present in other activities.
What have you done in your life that you’re most proud of?
I am most proud of the difference I have made in the lives of specifically my past students who I supported in gaining confidence after traumatic experiences. Being in Solo: A Star Wars Story was pretty cool too.
And finally: What’s the best sandwich you’ve ever eaten?
The world’s best sandwich from M&S, the prawn version. It is fantastic!
