Global Director of Inclusion, Diversity, and Belonging at Oliver Wyman

She is an experienced human resources professional with over 20 years of corporate experience across a range of functions, underpinned by a deep commitment to unlocking the potential of people. She holds dual fellowships in Human Resources (FCIPD) and Chartered Accountancy (FCCA), as well as a master’s in Business specializing in human resources and research on intersectional feminism, and a postgraduate certificate in Leadership from the Roffey Park Institute and University of Sussex.

Author of the Trusted Black Girl Books (1 & 2), which are focused on Black women’s experiences in the workplace, as well as the Cracked Cocoon series of self-help books, she was named on the Cranfield Women to Watch List 2022, which highlights women who are ready for non-executive board positions.
