Jessica Hardy, DMA Studio Manager has been invited to work with the Young Westminster Foundation as a “Young Ambassador”.
The prestigious position of a Young Ambassador means being part of a team of young people who either live, study or work in Westminster to collectively effect positive change for young people. Through social action, research and advocacy the team aims to support opportunities for their peers and make Westminster a better place for everyone, of all ages, cultures and professions.
Jessica, in talking about her new volunteer role said:
“Not only is it a privilege to be asked to represent our community, but this opens up new opportunities to continue my social value work here at DMA. Social Value is a very important part of our business culture, not only for working with industry peers and clients, but for supporting community groups and education.
“This week I attended my first event as a Young Ambassador at the House of Lords – I’d always wanted to visit parliament and this impressive venue didn’t disappoint. And neither did the event, which was aimed at breaking down barriers and creating opportunities for greater diversity and inclusion”.
The event was organised by Victoria & Victoria Westminster BIDs to mark International Women’s Day and focused on industries where women still struggle to achieve parity with their male counterparts.
Jessica joined DMA in April 2018 after studying Documentary Photography at the University of South Wales. Continually looking to expand her skill base, Jessica seeks out personal development opportunities and as such has also been asked to sit on the Young Westminster Foundation’s Marketing and Communications Working Group and assist in the development of a photography exhibition which will be held in Soho later this year.
