Bio: Sarah is the Head of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion for Macquarie in EMEA. In her role, she focuses on building an inclusive culture that works for everyone whilst also embedding equity throughout the employee lifecycle to ensure that all employees can thrive.

Sarah first moved into DEI in 2014 at HSBC, moving to Moody’s and then Macquarie. She was shortlisted for Exceptional Inclusion by the British LGBT Awards in 2021, and Rising Star in 2015 and 2016. Recent recognition for culture change programs, which have directly involved her have included Macquarie’s recent ascent to the top spot of the Stonewall Workplace Equality Index in 2022, being selected as a top ten employer by the Ethnicity Awards (2021) and British LGBT+ awards (2022).

Sarah has been pivotal in supporting all the ERGs at Macquarie, not just the Pride network, to drive forward a positive, inclusive and actionable DE&I agenda.
