Speaker Overview:

Since November 2017, Leah has focused on creating more inclusive workplaces, by diversifying the People Profession and tackling barriers faced by those trying to get into and on in work – particularly in the more challenging areas of inclusion. Led the Aspiring HRD Programme which partners existing People leaders with those looking to develop into future leaders, particularly from under-represented groups. Always looking at ways to showcase the work of employers doing great work in this space and amplifying different and diverse voices.
