We're thrilled to announce the appointment of Veda Harrison as our new Director of Creative, Confident Communities and A Fairer Future.
Veda will bring to the Foundation her wealth of experience across a range of sectors; her passion for creativity and innovation, and commitment to diversity, equity and inclusion. She will play a key role in helping us realise Esmée's mission, particularly in securing a fairer future and strengthening the bonds in communities in the UK.
Veda has a career spanning a number of sectors: her recent roles include as a Consultant for Creative Equals on Equity, Diversity and Inclusion; at the Money & Pensions Service developing their strategy on gender equality, vulnerability and financial wellbeing, and Paul Hamlyn Foundation's Ideas and Pioneers programme.
