I am… I am Rowan Taylor and I’ve come on board to support the team better manage all its data.
I love… sport – tennis and football especially. I used to play both competitively but of late, it has only been tennis. My energy for football is currently channelled into supporting West Brom. When looking around for my first role I didn’t want my worth to be tied exclusively to my salary. It’s more important for me to think about what work is for, what my global impact is and whether I can change anything. That’s when I found Women Ahead and Moving Ahead. I initially applied for a job they were advertising, knowing that I didn’t have all the right skills or experience for the role. However, this didn’t matter to me as it was more about making Liz aware of my interest in becoming a part of what she’s built here. I love the fact this is a social impact organisation that makes money and makes a difference. It’s so refreshing to find a business like this and I’m thrilled to be a part of it.
I bring… a new perspective and fresh ideas. I’ve just graduated business management at Reading University and love learning, innovating and looking for ways to improve things.
Moving Ahead and Women Ahead … helping business Get Ahead by embracing mentoring, diversity and inclusion.
