Evelyn has long had a passion for helping people reach their full potential and believes that championing diversity and inclusion in the workplace makes huge business sense. In 2019, Bupa committed to building a strong pipeline of female talent; working towards more balanced gender representation in recruitment; and doing more to support people returning to work, particularly those with care responsibilities. In her time as Bupa’s Group CEO, female representation on the Bupa Board is 41.6% and the Bupa Executive Team is 45% female; both above the 33% set by the Women on Boards, Lord Davies review. Bupa is also a signatory of the HM Treasury’s Women in Finance Charter and The 30% Club; global campaigns for a better balance of women at all levels. Bupa has a global footprint. In creating a diverse and inclusive workplace, Evelyn believes that Bupa’s workforce must reflect the global reach and needs of its customers. In 2018, the ‘Be you at Bupa’ pledge was launched, encouraging its people to bring their whole selves to work. In 2019, the internal engagement campaign, #together, celebrates an inclusive culture. Evelyn spent two years as a Non-Executive Director of Opportunity Now and is now Non-Executive Director for the Bank for Ireland and London First, supporting their diversity and inclusion agendas. She is also a member of the Insurance Supper Club, and regularly speaks at events to support women in their careers, including The Times CEO Summit, Opportunity Now’s ‘Same But Different’ Summit, the International Women’s Forum and Pipeline.
