Former Group Talent Manager at Royal Mail Group, Louisa has an in-depth understanding of fostering an inclusive workplace and talent pipeline on a large scale. Louisa founded BAME to Boardroom in order to follow her passion for working with businesses to develop Black, Asian & Minority Ethnic (BAME) talent into leadership roles.
Louisa hosts an interview series called “We Need to get Comfortable Talking about Race At Work”, interviewing people from BAME backgrounds about their challenges, successes and breakthroughs in their careers. As a result of this work she has developed a coaching programme for professionals aspiring to move up in their careers called “Be Visible, Be Confident”.
Louisa works with leaders in organisations to understand inclusive leadership and developed a “Race at Work Dialogue Programme”, touching on the challenges specific to being a Black person in the UK workforce; cultural and environmental factors. This insight supports better understanding of the value and importance of allies, mentoring and sponsorship for Black progression.
Louisa is a mum of three and grandma to two boys. Her life vision is to affect a million lives by connecting people to their true potential, to live lives they truly deserve.
