Kate has served as Executive Sponsor of GSK’s EMBRACE employee network since early 2020 and in that time she has grown its membership from under 500 to over 1800. By embedding targeted programs across her global organization to increase diverse representation, the division was able to meet, and in some cases exceed, its diversity targets. These targets included training over 30 diverse volunteers to take part in recruitment panels to eliminate unconscious bias and encourage new joiners, and arranging sponsors and mentors for early career BIPOC talent to accelerate development and career progression. The program also saw the introduction of targeted pay reviews of BIPOC talent across the business to ensure equity and to correct any anomalies in compensation. Additionally the new ‘grade mobility’ tracking system ensures the firm is committed to achieving genuine BIPOC mobility and not just filling the funnel anew at each level.
