Episode 71: HR is a powerful catalyst: Elly Tomlins, Chief People Officer, Britvic
Discussing that the role of HR leaders is as a powerful catalyst for others creating change, Elly shares her views on how the culmination of small changes over many years creates tectonic shifts in approaches to people, business, and in society.
Elly also shares her personal passion for understanding of race and ethnicity in modern society, and a wonderfully simple one line to summarise her approach to inclusion.
Highlighting the importance of kindness and empathic leadership, Elly invites you to step into this approach to role modelling, and to encourage others to do the same.

[12:30] HR on an ESG Committee
[17:30] Race, ethnicity, and class in modern society
[26:05] One line to remember for your approach to inclusion
