Solveig, WHAT WAS YOUR PROFESSIONAL EXPERIENCE?
I study communication, having completed my degree in Media, Culture and Communication, I am currently doing my Master’s in Brand and Innovation Management at ISCOM. Since September 2020 I am on a work-study contract with G’IMPACTE.
WHAT WAS THE MAIN REASON TO JOIN G’IMPACTE ?
Value of inclusion that G’IMPACTE cultivates resonated in me right away. It actually echoes the current moment we are living. COVID crisis changed the way we see the world today, the way we work.
G’IMPACTE is a novel approach which speaks about inclusivity, which helps teammates and citizens in general in their self-improvement, to upgrade work environment, to protect the planet. Project actions are aligned with my own values and convictions.
WHAT IS YOUR MISSION AT G’IMPACTE ?
I am in charge of G’IMPACTE communication for the project launch, current events and news… I also work on specific projects and at the same time discover G’IMPACTE, this allows me to communicate the essence much better.
CAN YOU GIVE AN EXAMPLE OF ONE OF YOUR PROJECTS ?
I work on Decathlon Englos project, company’s leading store. We made footprint assessment at a given moment, through feedbacks of teammates and other stakeholders of its ecosystem. Numerous interviews are done, now we are trying to define the most important subjects that the teammates could commit to, for example, implementing second life product sales in the store.
WHAT ARE YOU THE MOST PROUD OF AT G’IMPACTE ?
It has been only couple of months that I am here, but I already took part in various activities! Personally, I am proud of facilitating a workshop in Roubaix Velodrome on topic of inclusivity. Quite different personalities from different age groups participated in this exercise, some coming from non-governmental, some from public and some from private sector. The outcomes of our discussion exceeded my expectations.
WHAT IS THE MOST IMPORTANT FOR YOU IN G’IMPACTE PROJECT?
I enjoy the start-up spirit within G’IMPACTE. We work in a collaborative mode on meaningful projects. I meet many people, different ages, different professions, every day I learn something new. Even if the methodology used is the same, every G’IMPACTE project is unique because people and environment are different in every case, we must show flexibility. But the biggest value for me is rich encounters I make.
CONCLUDING REMARKS ?
I believe we must stop being so individualistic as in fact we need one another, and if we cultivate these social links, we are more likely to be helpful, and so G’IMPACTE could contribute as well. I like the fact that G’IMPACTE does not change it all as through magic but acts step by step. One action is the cause of another, this is how the change starts and accelerates.
