Chair of Trustees

Gen joined the mySociety Board as Chair of Trustees in 2023, taking the baton from outgoing Chair Catherine Brown.

In her own words she is “a researcher and policy advisor with fifteen years’ experience of leading and supporting organisations in the areas of social measurement, social innovation, social impact, social entrepreneurship and social investment.”

She currently works as Deputy CEO at Social Investment Business, leading on impact measurement research, data, communications, policy, business systems and business development and spearheading innovation in grant-making and social investment funds.

Gen brings a deep knowledge of and interest in democracy, as well as a collaborative and consensus building approach to decision making, and an enthusiasm and passion for impact — so a useful and needed set of skills for mySociety.
