Workshop: Removing non-educational barriers to recruitment

Bio

I have over 20 years experience in recruiting, developing and retaining people; initially as supporters/volunteers in voluntary sector organisations, and later as staff and board members. My success in this has earned me places on industry advisory panels and seen my work featured as case studies. I am a specialist in involving people from ‘ordinary backgrounds’ (i.e. the majority of the population whose parents were neither university graduates nor in professional/managerial occupations; disproportionately including those from BAME groups and regions outside London and the South East). My expertise comes from having been CEO of the Equality Trust and author of a book on social mobility & opportunity “The End of Aspiration?” (Policy Press, 2019) among other publications, as well as from my own experience. I work with a variety of organisations to analyse their involvement journey (from understanding the requirements and attributes of underrepresented groups, to opportunity design, outreach & promotion, and onboarding through to development and retention), identifying barriers and potential opportunities.

Workshop: Grassroots – building active citizenship

Bio: I’ve spent most of my career helping businesses to do the right thing and be better in a way that makes commercial sense – either through improving their resource efficiency and environmental performance, or developing and executing social impact programmes that align with their brand and strategy, utilise their skills and assets (including employees!) and resonate with customers. I passionately believe that businesses can do both – be successful and be good for our communities, people and planet
