Rebecca Emerson, Head of Oliver Wyman in the UK and Ireland, has worked to make Oliver Wyman a more inclusive workplace. Her work as a senior ally to the LGBT+ community in particular has led her to be named a top corporate ally in the 2019 British LGBT+ awards.
Rebecca has published multiple articles on inclusion in City AM, the Huffington Post, and on her LinkedIn blog, and driven the efforts that placed Oliver Wyman in the Stonewall Top 100 Inclusive Employers for the first time ever in 2019. She speaks at internal and external events on LGBT+ topics and in 2018 was named in the Financial Times as a Top 100 Straight Ally Executive.
