The ‘R’ word

November 6, 2017


Redundancy. As an active social media user I felt a taboo in sharing with my friends that I was being made redundant. Yet there was no shame in it, I simply couldn’t move with my job. I’m very process driven so when people exclaimed you will be fine - I wanted to understand the process to get there. For that reason I recorded my first vlog back in September to break taboo and share my journey, watch here Redundancy T - 60 .


Here’s what I’ve learnt so far:

  • I’ve realised one of the things I value about where I work is the amazing people. Then it dawned on me - I won’t lose that network just because I’ve gone. 

  • I’ve explored my values and established that certainty and a sense of belonging are really high for me. Both are currently grey areas so I’m finding other ways to fulfil these. 

  • The outside world is really exciting. I’m taking time to Network, speak publicly, explore other fabulous women’s journeys to success. I’m now wondering why I didn’t do more of this sooner. 

  • I have more time to progress my passion of getting more girls in to STEM and I’m helping out at a brilliant school to develop a STEM pathway. 

  • The skills I’ve gained can be applied in the real world! Global mentoring connecting my network - here we go!
