Claire champions diversity at every opportunity with a specific focus on paying it forward. She helped create the ‘My Life’ parental leave transparency and flexible working policy at Direct Line Group, launching it externally to set an example across business. Her research in this area was used in support of a Parliamentary Bill led by Liberal Democrat Deputy Leader Jo Swinson to make all large organisations publish their parental leave and pay policies. Claire is a former Vice President of Women in PR, helping women reach their potential through mentoring, events and championing gender issues. Claire has now joined the Executive Board of Global Women in PR, an organisation dedicated to supporting female talent in the PR industry. Despite being on maternity leave in 2019, Claire won the PRCA’s City and Financial Professional of the year and became a Fellow at the Chartered Institute of Public Relations.
