Episode 14: Kim Gray, NED, DE&I champion and insurance lead

Published on: 26th September, 2022

In the seventh episode of season three of Behind the Desk I am joined by Kim Gray, who has recently left her role at NTT data as Head of Insurance and Head of Diversity & Inclusion to build her own company called Inclusive City, with a focus on Insurance & DE&I Advisory Consulting and Executive Coaching. 

Kim has a 20 year plus career history in insurance banking management consulting and has seen a lot across the years in the financial services sector. I was absolutely engrossed in this chat from start to finish. She provides some brilliant insight and advice for people at all levels in their career. She talks about her early life, how she climbed the ladder as a ‘dubious hire’, her advice for changing the narrative for women in leadership and her golden rule for success, with some interesting stories thrown in between. 

Kim might be my favourite guest so far...
