Serap Potocki
Human Resources-Senior Specialist
I am a passionate organisational development & learning professional with over 16 years’ experience in building capability, leadership, talent and culture. Over the years I have worked on projects that have been instrumental in driving capability uplift, behavioral and cultural change, some of which have received national and global excellence recognition.
 
I’ve found my dream job working in diversity and inclusion at Telstra where the work I do makes a difference to our people in real tangible ways. Leading work that builds diverse inclusive teams at Telstra where people feel they belong and are supported to do their best is truly fulfilling.
 
As a leader I am inclusive and focused on creating an environment where people can feel safe to bring their whole selves to work and empowered to drive meaningful change.
I love collaboration because when you work as a team and tap into each other’s talents and perspectives, that is where creative magic happens!
 
I am a mother to an 8 year old autistic boy (and a 5 year old lab – Holly- who thinks she is human!) Both have taught me to see and experience the world through a kaleidoscope.
 
My neurodiverse son has taught me so much! He has redefined ‘Awesome’ in ways I could not have dreamed! He has taught me about patience, endurance and progress. He taught me to speak with conviction and not be afraid or be silenced by those who want to maintain the status quo. He taught me to challenge with care and build awareness to foster change. He taught me that when we advocate, support and empower those who are disadvantaged, great things can happen… even a miracle or two. So, inspired by my son, I bring this mindset and experience to everything I do!  Dylan you’re my hero!

  • International Women’s Day: Inclusive work culture helps women thrive

    I’m passionate about diversity and inclusion and creating opportunities for our people to do great work, including accommodating diverse needs, working preferences and creating new career paths for both women and men to re-enter the workforce and have fulfilling careers.
     
    To mark International Women’s Day I asked some of my colleagues to share a bit more about the work that they do and their experience at Telstra.
