Kate’s comments:
“I am delighted as a proud lesbian to be included in LGBT Great’s Top 100 Gamechanger’s 2022 campaign. We can all make a small difference every day and, as a collective, we can make big things happen. It is key that we create inclusive and diverse environments that support and encourage LGBTQI+ visibility and representation. When there is visibility and representation, the LGBTQI+ community knows it is a safe place for them to be themselves. We have come far but there is so much more to do to achieve absolute equality. Throughout my career, I have had the opportunity to work with true allies who have created inclusive environments to enable my professional and personal growth and it has helped positively shape my career.”
