Her qualifications include the development, implementation, and management of diversity, equity, and inclusion training content. Marcia’s particular focus on content development, coupled with her extensive background in coaching and mentoring, has afforded her the opportunity to develop strong communication skills and an ability to engage with both internal and external stakeholders at strategic and operational levels. This skill set has created a strong foundation she uses to facilitate workshops addressing issues of diversity and inclusion.
In addition to her impressive experience with content development and delivery, Marcia possesses strong project management skills. Her roles as a DEI subject matter expert at the UK Atomic Energy Authority and Utilita Energy Ltd allowed her to hone her leadership skills as they relate to facilitating collaborative projects.
