Week two of #BCORPMONTH with BaseKit Community Lead, Antonia

Last week we launched BaseKit’s B Corp Month with B Corp lead, Wendy and this week we’re excited to speak to Antonia, our B Corp Community Lead and Marketing Director. Antonia shares her thoughts on what she’s most proud of and why, BaseKit’s biggest achievements so far and plans for 2024 and her three highlights from the recently published 2023 Impact Report.

It’s been 9 months since BaseKit was awarded the B Corp certification, what are you most proud of and why?

So way before BaseKit officially became a B Corp company nine months ago, I’ve always noticed that the team are genuinely committed to a force for good agenda. When new ideas are brought to the table on how we can make an impact, no one hesitates to roll their sleeves up to support and participate for the better of their community and their environment, and I’m really proud to be part of such a committed team.

As B Corp Community lead, what have been the biggest achievements so far and what are you planning for 2024?

As the Community impact lead at BaseKit, I think our biggest achievement over the past 12 months has been our support for our charity of the year FareShare Southwest. We clocked up a total of 18 hours volunteering, packing up food boxes for those who need it most and also relabelling food stock for the charity. We also took part in some fundraising activities, one in particular was a step challenge organised by our well-being champion Rae. We did steps spanning a distance of over 11,000 kilometres and dedicated 600 hours to raise money for FareShare.

So we have some exciting plans for our local community in 2024 including supporting our newly elected charity of the year, Caring in Bristol, with a range of new activities. We also want to play a bigger part in supporting minority groups in tech to join the industry and play our part in helping build community in the local area so that people can connect, learn and share their experiences for the better of themselves and their local community.

It’s exciting to share our second Impact Report and to see how far BaseKit has come. What are the three highlights from the 2023 Impact Report?

We’re excited to release our BaseKit 2023 impact report. I think the biggest highlights for me have been the action we’ve taken to raise awareness of mental health and champion well-being at work. Joining the Includability family as an official Includability employer and the donations we’ve made through volunteering hours funding and planting trees for the better of our community and our environment.
