Sarah is committed to diversity and runs Spring Forward, an annual conference encouraging women to think about leadership positions and providing life and career inspiration. In 2019 the conference explored the theme of authentic leadership and 100% of delegates said they would recommend it to a friend. In February 2019, Sarah published a white paper titled The C Words: culture, confidence and choice, Women in the Boardroom. The paper draws on research from the inaugural Spring Forward conference and makes a number of recommendations for women and employers; including introducing Rosie’s Rule, calling on organisations to interview at least one competent and qualified women for every senior leadership position. Sarah is exploring the launch of a mentoring programme in 2020 and continues to mentor a number of women within the fields of PR and communication and beyond. She was appointed Chair of the Taylor Bennett Foundation in 2017, and is a Non-Executive Director at the HSE – their youngest board appointment. Externally, Sarah has joined the charity Speakers for Schools, delivering talks on PR, journalism and being a woman in business. She has also been appointed as an independent advisor to the Welsh Assembly Commission and Chair of their Workforce, Engagement and Remuneration Committee.
