Group Head of Diversity, Inclusion & Engagement
Jade Fraser is a courageous executive leader, trusted advisor, and operational strategist with a deep specialist experience in Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DE&I). Jade has a unique portfolio of leading global organisations in the design and delivery of group DEI strategies. Most recently, they designed Natura & Co’s first group DEI strategy, including Natura Cosméticos, Aesop, The Body Shop and Avon with a global presence in 73 countries. Jade unified four iconic brands in their strategic vision for the future, prioritising inclusive leadership, inclusive talent management (acquisition & development) and data analytics and monitoring. Affecting this change is punctuated by close and valued executive partnership for C-suite leaders, prioritising psychological safety so that we curate a culture of rewarded vulnerability, innovation and inclusion. They provide thought leadership and subject matter expertise to a broad range of partners, organisations and clients, delivering key note speeches, executive development, and leading DEI centres of excellence. This spans the defence, justice, immigration, health, and transport sectors, partnering with UK government, Ministry of Justice, and European Space Agency (to name a few) to deliver change. Jade also acts as an advisory board member of We Create Space, a thriving queer community of leaders who inspire positive change in the world by prioritising self-care and personal growth. As a binary-disrupting changemaker, Jade accepts the challenge daily to resist minimizing their existence to make others feel comfortable. Jade leads Diversity and Inclusion by replacing these words with disruption and innovation, using personal courage to ensure each act is a form of resistance as they leverage what privileges they have – despite at times experiencing the consequences of a lack of privilege – to create change in the world around us.
