In Anthony's words:

"I’m Anthony - I’m 31, originally from Mansfield and have been in London since 2008. I currently work as a Recruiting Programs Associate at Cloudflare, where I manage the company’s ongoing projects and training programs.

I previously studied and worked at Chickenshed theatre company which developed my passion for diversity and inclusion; I still have the opportunity to champion this in my current role by facilitating learning opportunities with employees on these topics.

My low point/difficult time was when I was working in a toxic workplace; I wanted to share this experience on the podcast to hopefully help others that may be in a similar situation. It is so important for you to feel valued in the workplace and to know that if you aren’t then you have the right to take yourself out of that space because you deserve more."
