Roxane in a few words

I'm a rounded and agile freelance inclusion specialist with vast experience delivering training, managing projects and conducting research. I work with a variety of organisations delivering training and consultancy on diversity, inclusion and involvement. I'm currently delivering disability inclusion training to the United Nations' World Food Programme in both English and French. I've also translated the training content into French and am keen to expand my translation experience.

Experience

Diversity and Ability

Inclusion Consultant  - As a freelancer

May 2022 - Today (6 months)

I work with Diversity and Ability to deliver workshops and training programmes about a range of diversity and inclusion issues including disability inclusion, accessible communications, inclusive practices and Universal Design. I deliver training in English and French to a range of British and global organisations and businesses such as TfL and the United Nations' World Food Programme (WFP). I also advised on the development of content for WFP training to ensure it is culturally sensitive and meets the needs of staff across the organisation and based in multiple countries. Additionally, I translate training content from English to French with a quick turnaround time.

I support Shaping Our Lives' general work and projects as required. Shaping Our Lives is a non-profit making user-led organisation specialising in the inclusive involvement of Disabled people and people from other marginalised communities. Key tasks and responsibilities have so far included:
- managing the organisation of a national, hybrid conference gathering over 150 delegates: the conference was the first service user-led conference on inclusive involvement. I acted as the main point of contact from speakers, staff and members, liaised with the venue and suppliers and oversaw the event's running order.
- organising and supporting the delivery of workshops and training sessions for service users, researchers, social workers and local authority staff.
- supporting the day-to-day running of a growing community interest company

SHAPING OUR LIVES

Freelance Researcher  - As a freelancer

May 2021 - May 2022 (1 year)

I conducted research as part of a study into Disabled peoples' experience of using digital technologies to access social work services. The project was a collaboration between Shaping Our Lives, King's College London and the British Association of Social Workers. I interviewed Disabled users of social care services and social workers and later coded and analysed interview data in collaboration with fellow researchers. I also led the development of outputs aimed at supporting Disabled users of social work to access services using digital communication technology. In addition, I presented research findings at a webinar and at a conference organised by the British Association of Social Workers. Lastly, I co-authored two peer-reviewed journal articles (awaiting publication).
