  • Financial Times ranking: Diversity Leaders
    Financial Times ranking: Diversity LeadersI wrote copy for the FT Diversity Leaders landing page and also researched and fact-checked for the project itself. At time of publication, the ranking (which was published as part of a special report in the Financial Times newspaper and on FT.com) was the FT's broadest assessment of diversity and inclusion in the workplace to date. https://www.ft.com/content/9f04b796-5492-11e9-91f9-b6515a54c5b1
