Helping you succeed in tomorrow's world

I have a keen interest in the intersection of climate justice and social justice particularly when it comes to diversity and inclusion and access to justice.

As a member of the OC REACH (Race, Ethnicity And Cultural Heritage) committee, I work to champion diversity and inclusion within Osborne Clarke and the wider business community. I am honoured to be a mentor on the Bristol Mayor's Stepping Up programme designed to encourage people from less represented groups into leadership positions in the city.

I am also proud to be a trustee of the Bristol Law Centre, a unique local charity which provides specialist legal advice on social welfare issues to thousands of the most vulnerable people in the region.

Much has already been written about the business case for adopting an effective responsible business strategy, but there is increasingly a legal and regulatory dimension (Personnel Today, 2020).
