Nominated by Katrina Collier, Founder of Disrupt HR
“Ellie is incredible and an inspiration to those around her. In Kampala, Uganda in September 2018, I watched her deliver a session on wellbeing to staff from Hope for Justice – a charity aiming to bring an end to modern slavery – and they were mesmerized.
“In December, she took to the stage for the first time at Disrupt HR London to share her experience in front of 160+ of her industry peers and again was mesmerizing. At 23, she was the second youngest speaker to date.
“In the middle of all of this, she completed her master’s in HR Management receiving distinction for her dissertation.”
Ellie’s advice to other women just starting out in HR
“HR is about people; you’ll find yourself having conversations you’ve never had to have before and it can be difficult, but it’s so rewarding when you see the impact you can make. It takes a conscious effort to develop how you want to be perceived and to reflect and learn from every interaction you have.”
