ABOUT YOUR TUTOR

 

Anna Lane

Anna is the Empowering Enterprise Project Manager at Devon Communities Together.

She works with local employers and community organisations to facilitate a wide range of activities for young people who are NEET (Not in Education Employment and Training) across Devon.

Within her current work and throughout her background working on youth, accessibility and outreach projects, Anna has a range of experience in supporting both employers and potential employees to overcome ‘barriers’ to workplace inclusion.

She is passionate about examining and dismantling unhelpful social constructs that exclude many from the workplace, and equipping and empowering employers to commit to inclusive workplace approaches and practices.

Anna also works on evaluation and impact measurement.  

Anna is a firm believer in the idea that there is a treasure trove of untapped potential in people who are often considered ‘unfit for effective work.’
