Holly said: “I am absolutely honoured to now be a part of the WUN team. Since discovering the network just over a year ago, meeting the team at Utility Week, to then attending both online and in-person events; it’s been an absolute pleasure to engage with and to meet like-minded individuals that have a real passion for D&I and for supporting one another with their career journeys.
Having worked in the industry for a number of years now, and harbouring a passion for D&I, I was taken back by the hospitality and the welcoming nature of the WUN community. I have learnt so much about the industry from fellow members and from the keynotes that I have attended.
I’m really looking forward to supporting the network further as an advocate, to assist in the growth of WUN further, add value to members through advice and support, as well as enabling others to reap the benefits of such a supportive space where there is simply no judgement. WUN is an incredible group of compassionate women and allies, with a real passion for the industry…”
