She is also a member of MFS' EMEA Diversity Committee which is lead from MFS' London office and is much more hands-on in nature, looking at short term initiatives aiming to improve all aspects of diversity & inclusion.

Maddi says "Growing up with my wonderful but sometimes non-conventional family; and through my own experiences as a Single Parent and then a Step Parent, I know first-hand that relationships and families come in all shape and sizes, and are not always based on biological links. This has also given me some insight into the challenges that this can create in the workplace if you cannot be yourself. I am proud to be an LGBT Great ally role model, helping to drive a diverse and inclusive culture in our industry where everyone can bring their genuine selves to work"
