Savannah is establishing the first ConnectFutures Youth Advisory Board, working to ensure youth voice is embedded into the work and decision making conducted by the organisation. She is an experienced public speaker, facilitator and campaigner who is dedicated to youth empowerment through education. In roles such as Education Officer at the University of Sheffield’s Students’ Union, National Citizenship Service mentor, freelance workshop facilitator and event host, she has championed the importance of innovation, inclusion and curiosity for developing solutions that uplift young people. Savannah has organised and hosted educational events to an array of audiences: teachers, lecturers, children, students and senior leaders such as elected officials, senior civil servants and Chief Executives. She also has experience running campaigns about topics such as narrowing the BAME (Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic) student attainment gap, investing in digital resources that increase accessibility to education and decolonising the curriculum. Savannah is passionate about facilitating tough conversations, and exploring rather than shying away from the complexities and nuances of socio-political issues, then embracing the journey necessary to find solutions.
