I’m currently working with a number of great organisations, large and small. They include the following:
Sainsbury’s: I’m a member of the Sainsbury’s Foundation Advisory Board which reports to the Operating Board on sustainable supply chain ideas like Fairly Traded which explores new ways of engaging with and empowering producer communities in Africa.
Premier League Equality Standard Panel: We assess the progress of the member clubs of the Premier League against the standards set by league rules for promoting equality within their organisations. This covers all the characteristics protected by law.
National Citizen Service Trust: when the new royal charter body was set up to run NCS in December 2018 I became a board member. I also chair the Audit & Risk Committee.
Guy’s & St Thomas’ NHS Foundation Trust: from 1 January 2020 I am becoming a non-executive director of one of the largest NHS Trusts.
Impact X Capital: in May 2019 I made an investment in this new private equity fund that invests in entrepreneurs from disadvantaged backgrounds and became one of twenty founding partners.
Arco Academy: I chair the Advisory Board of Arco which was established in early 2017 as an alternative provision organisation based in Camberwell, south London. It provides education to young people who for whatever reason are not in mainstream schooling, engaging them through sport.
Centre for Social Investigation: Advisory board member to CSI which operates from Nuffield College, Oxford doing rigourous academic analysis to better understand social issues especially social mobility and racial discrimination in the labour market.
The Elephant Group: I’ve recently joined this charity which represents a group of schools who have come together to create a programme for their brightest pupils with the intention of getting more people from disadvantaged backgrounds into elite universities.
