Olivia is Equity and Inclusivity Content Consultant.

Olivia Pennelle looks at content from a big-picture perspective, but with the curious eye of inclusivity. She asks the crucial question we should be asking of all websites: does the content exclude anyone, or does it make people feel like there is space for them? Olivia is also experienced at working with organizations to help create a visual presence beyond their products or services — she helps showcase the values and talent of the people within the organization, and through her content creation, she helps establish their voice as an expert within their industry. To her, it isn’t about what we’re selling, it’s about how we make people feel, because that’s what motivates people into action.

Go-to potluck party item: Za’atar spiced roasted squash, or roasted hazelnut chocolate date balls — they taste like fudge and everyone walks around asking “who brought those balls?!”

Go-to potluck party item: Sampling what everyone else brought. Although she favors chips, salsa, guacamole, and maybe stuffed mushrooms. And tiny sandwiches. And always olive and cheese trays. Sampling is essential.
