Rodney Williams

In June 2016, Rodney became the Co-Lead for ‘ONE’, National Grid’s multicultural network. ONE’s ambition is to support the BAME community at work. He leads a committee of volunteers that provide activities to support BAME colleagues to help them pursue their personal and professional development goals. His mentoring scheme has created 42 new mentoring relationships, assisting with broadening employee’s exposure to different business areas. He also mentors several BAME employees including new graduates. Rodney also created the ‘Development Programme for Diverse Leaders’ in collaboration with HR. This is designed to upskill and support aspiring BAME colleagues to progress to middle management and above. Outside of work, Rodney sits on the steering committee of The Network of Networks (TNON) BAME/multicultural chapter supporting network leaders from over 50 organisations including FTSE companies. TNON aims to provide a platform for cross-company network collaboration. He is also strategy associate to the RISE Collective, a UK based charity focused on empowering disenfranchised young people through music, arts and the media.
