Georgina Brown Speakers Bio
EDI Consultant, Founder of BARDO Inclusive, and
Senior Adviser to Advance HE and the Higher Education Sector in the UK and abroad.
Specialising in behavioural change, I have over 25 years experience working on equality, diversity, and inclusion (EDI) projects with leading organisations. After graduating from the University of Bristol with a Master’s degree in Strategic Management in 2006, and working for Europe’s leading change management company for over 10 years, I specialised in EDI projects primarily within the higher education sector, uniformed services, and business to consumer companies.
Projects focused on three areas 1) auditing systems and processes through an inclusive lens, 2) crafting and delivering bespoke EDI training packages, and 3) social change campaigns. My portfolio has included: The British Army, L’Oreal, Logica, The Home Office, the European Parliament, Universities, the NHS, and the Borders and Immigration Agency.
In 2021 I joined Advance HE as their Senior Adviser for Equality Charters, after four years as Head of EDI at the University of Bath. I am also the founder of BARDO Inclusive, a consultancy and strategic enabler for EDI, with the vision of developing the inclusion narrative with a focus on self-reflection, social cohesion, and shared values. I have a very strong passion for diversifying the outdoor space.
But who am I really?... I am a shy, white, cisgender, pansexual, dyslexic, Buddhist, meditating, dog-loving human with OCD and a strong work ethic, who believes we all belong and in the power of kindness.
