How Ellis can work with you
Ellis is passionate about tackling inequality, with a specific interest in social justice, education and working with young people. They bring an inclusive, energetic, community based, and ambitious approach to everything they do. They're comfortable in the uncomfortable and specialise in holding space to facilitate those difficult but essential conversations that are needed for growth, learning and change. They are constantly developing their anti-oppressive practice, improving both their awareness and the awareness of those they work with, and building their emotional awareness to both challenge and educate. They have 15 years of experience across the voluntary and public sector. They are a facilitative leader with experience of turning around under-performing projects, setting clear goals and systematically reporting on progress. They bring people together to create a supportive and inclusive organisational culture, working across diverse teams in challenging environments.

Who is Ellis?
Ellis (they/them) is interested in how to enable people to be their most authentic selves and have the difficult conversations that are needed to create a more equitable world.
