Hello, and welcome to The Gender Blog. I’m Cleo and I live and work (primarily as a freelance writer and global diversity, inclusion and employee engagement specialist) in Dorset, a hundred miles or so south west of London, with my husband, TLS. I love to travel and, on this blog, I write about things which catch my eye as they relate to women, including myself: in the media, in politics, in business, in books, in the world.
Between 2006 and autumn 2009, I worked for a major professional services firm, running their global gender diversity function and banging the drum for more women in leadership roles, more women in the pipeline and other issues relating to gender balance and equality of opportunity. I then took a break and travelled, read and wrote for a while before re-joining the corporate world for a three year stint as global head of diversity and inclusion for a major Australian engineering services company. I’m currently working as the interim head of employee engagement for a financial services company in the City (of London). Check out my full corporate CV on LinkedIn.
As well as blogging, I have written for a number of other websites, particularly The Glass Hammer and Evolved Employer. Please check out my freelance writing site Collaborative Lines and get in touch if you’d like to discuss a writing assignment or an interim diversity and inclusion project.
Note: I do not accept paid advertising, paid/sponsored guest posts or product placement blogs.
However, if you’d like to discuss writing or consulting projects, please contact me via cleo at the gender blog dot com – thank you.
