In her role as Chief People Officer at Audible, Anne has consistently partnered with the CEO to drive diversity in the leadership team, including reaching 55% female representation in the executive team in 2021. Thanks to Anne’s work to intentionally grow women into leadership roles, the proportion of women at VP level and above has risen by 11 percentage points from 2020 to 2021. As well as informing the creation of a D&I strategy which includes targeted, bespoke plans for each business, Anne encouraged the formation of formal affinity groups, renamed ‘impact’ groups, with one key aim being to increase diverse representation in Audible’s content offerings. In April 2021, Anne spoke at the Human Resource Development Virtual Summit and highlighted the large number of women who lost jobs or left the workforce due the pandemic, and the critical need for advocacy and policy to address the problem.
