Meet the trustee

Elizabeth Uviebinené is a multi-award-winning author and columnist at The Financial Times.

“I am a big believer in people fulfilling their potential, and we cannot do that until we address the structural disadvantage that young women face. They deserve more and I want to play an active role in campaigning for a fairer working future.”
