"Time and time again, I've seen women work their way through difficulties when they receive the right support."
Anna Wilk is a passionate Diversity and Inclusion Consultant who specialise in Maternity Leave support.
Women have been a source of inspiration for Anna she started working with them over 20 years ago. As a young Polish immigrant in the UK, one her first jobs was in childcare.
At the beginning, she provided mothers practical support to care for their babies. But she quickly realised she could provide much more than hands-on support – she was able to form close bonds with the women she worked with, helping them through the emotional rollercoaster that many women go through after a having a child.
Diversity and inclusion are currently top priorities for today's top forward-thinking companies.Anna Wilk Consulting was established to address these challenges and support women in providing for their families, communities, business and workplaces.Anna believes this is avoidable if new mothers receive the right support, and she has developed a series of services designed to be included in the benefits package provided to employees as part of the maternity leave policy.
By providing targeted support to new mothers, Anna helps employers close potential gaps with employees and build a family-friendly work environment for mothers returning to work.
