Until 2019 she worked for Greenpeace International as People and Culture Director, where she led the development and implementation of the organisation’s first global
People Strategy, oversaw the creation of a leadership development programme, and led the development of an Integrity System for the global organisation.
Prior to that, in her role overseeing the development of national and regional Greenpeace organisations around the world, she was one of the key architects of a major strategic change to the organisation’s operating model. She led Greenpeace’s global climate campaign in the period immediately after the agreement of the Kyoto
Protocol, and, at the start of her career, participated in the campaign
to save Antarctica as a wilderness, protected from exploitation.
