Rachel is a Programme Manager at the Design Council, running Public Sector & Social Innovation projects.
Having worked across the private, public and third sector, Rachel brings her multidisciplinary background to programmes at the Design Council. As a consultant, she was fortunate to experience a lot of breadth in her role. Projects varied from working with the Department for International Trade to design a service to help exporters export goods post-Brexit, to re-defining the British Business Bank’s Employee Value Experience and transforming AVON’s customer experience.
Rachel has completed a year-long social leadership programme called On Purpose, which gave her the opportunity to transfer her skills to purpose-led organisations. Through the programme she received training on systems thinking, measuring impact, building movements, and values-led leadership. She leads programmes with a greater awareness of herself, others, and wider impact as a result.
Outside work, Rachel runs Beyond Her: an award-winning community for women learning to be confident, resilient and compassionate leaders. She enjoys painting, exploring local foodie spots in North-East London and is especially partial to an espresso martini.
