Sustainability strategy at leading global events company, RX
Can you tell me a bit about your career and how you ended up as Sustainability Director at RX? Can you also give me some background on RELX and RX.
Like many people when I finished university I didn’t quite know what I wanted to do but I quickly realized I wanted to a job with purpose. After a short stint in the charity sector, I worked for a charity focused on responsible business practices. It was my experience here that really drove my interest in corporate responsibility and how businesses can be agents for positive change. Inspired to cross over into the corporate sector I joined RELX in 2011 where I have spent the past 10 years working in a variety of CSR roles, latterly as Global Responsibility and Inclusion Manager. My responsibilities included managing and developing RELX’s global community programme and human rights policy, and engagement on the UN Sustainable Development Goals, including managing the RELX SDG Resource Centre. Most recently, I helped to develop and implement RELX’s inclusion and diversity strategy and goals which have now been rolled out globally across the organisation, including at RX.
