As part of Pride season, we are running a series of short podcasts providing an insight into the lives and experiences of LGBT+ leaders. These exceptional individuals come from a diverse range of backgrounds and will be sharing with listeners their experiences of LGBT+ inclusion in their respective industries, and also some ideas on what more allies can do to promote LGBT+ equality.
In this episode, Head of Pensions Daniel Gerring speaks with Zoe Burdo, Consultant at LCP, and Katy Hyams, Head of Regulatory Policy at the London Metal Exchange. This informative conversation focusses on lesbian, gay, bi and trans women, the double glazed glass ceiling, allyship and much more.
Zoe is a qualified actuary working as a Consultant at Lane Clark & Peacock, advising clients on all aspects of their pensions arrangements. She is the firm’s diversity and inclusion (D&I) co-ordinator, working alongside LCP’s executive leadership to develop policy and strategy internally and support LCP’s four D&I networks. Zoe also specialises in behavioural biases and uses this expertise across her various roles at LCP.
Katy Hyams is a financial services regulatory specialist. Starting her career in legal private practice, she now focuses on broader policy and legislative development. Katy works hard to support the London Metal Exchange’s growing diversity and inclusion programme with particular emphasis on supporting LGBT+ staff and encouraging increased visibility from allies.
