Catherine is a portfolio non executive director and coach working with organisations in the private, public and charitable sectors.

She was formerly Chief Executive of the Food Standards Agency where she established their open data and digital transformation programmes and focused on empowering people to make decisions about their food. She currently works with the Wellcome Foundation as an expert advisor on diversity and inclusion, and was previously an Equal Opportunities Commissioner, and has a particular interest in how all citizens can make their voices heard, particularly those in the most marginalised communities.

Catherine is always interested to know the views of others about the organisations and issues she works with – so if you have a perspective on civic engagement or the work of mySociety you’d like to share with her, please get in touch.
