Project Manager ‑ Equality, Diversity and Inclusion
Solene Anglaret: Project Manager ‑ Equality, Diversity and Inclusion
Hi, my name is Solène and I am the Equality, Inclusion, and Diversity Project Manager here at KTN. Born and raised in France, I moved abroad for the first time when I was 18. Since then, I’ve lived in 6 countries and travelled to over 50. After graduating from Sciences Po Bordeaux in France with a master’s in political science and international economy, I started my career as a Risk Manager at Veolia Environment in the UK. I then moved to the travel industry and worked as a Transformation Project Manager and later a Business Development Associate Director for Thomas Cook in the UK, Germany, and China. Thereafter, I relocated to Australia and joined Expedia Group as the Area Manager for Melbourne. That’s when and where my involvement in diversity, inclusion, and belonging began. Upon my return to the UK last year, I joined Harri as Director of People & Culture before moving to KTN to focus on diversity and inclusion in more depth. Over the past 10 years, I have gathered experience in a wide range of areas from strategy, to project management, transformation, events, communications, marketing, product development, leadership, coaching, culture, and diversity, inclusion, and belonging.
Outside of work, I love writing! A few years ago, I created a company called ‘Be Beyond Borders’ under which I published four books and worked as a copywriter for different organisations. I also like painting and, in December 2019, hosted my very first art and poetry exhibition. As someone who (strangely) enjoys the stage, I have had the opportunity to both act and speak at multiple events including TEDx Melbourne. When I’m not writing, painting, or presenting, you’ll find me cooking, exercising, or scrolling through instagram photos… Until I have the pleasure to meet you all, I will leave you with one of my favourite quotes: “You are not a drop in the ocean. You are the entire ocean, in a drop.” Rumi
