With a creative background in journalism and publishing, Rachael is especially interested in bringing narrative and storytelling around DEI to the fore—whether it’s working with senior leaders on diversity strategy design or with management teams wanting to build inclusive cultures at work. She also regularly engages actors, illustrators, musicians and other artists to enhance our service design and delivery.

Rachael grew up in Huddersfield, West Yorkshire, a town with a long history of social activism. Harold Wilson, the PM whose government decriminalized male homosexuality and liberalized abortion law, was born there. Having moved there from a rural North Yorkshire sheep-farming town, she experienced the othering that came from being called ‘offcumden’—disparaging dialect for someone not from that place. The subtleties of how exclusion and disadvantage play out have stuck with her ever since.
