Research & Engagement Manager at ShareAction
Jo is a geologist with a passion for the Earth. Four years ago she left her job exploring for oil and gas, to build a career contributing to the mitigation of climate change. Thanks to the On Purpose leadership programme, there’s no going back on her newfound sense of purpose. Jo’s training as an Earth Scientist gives her a detailed understanding of the problem of climate change, but now she is shifting focus onto the possible solutions. Jo currently works at ShareAction, where she talks to investors about how they can use capital to contribute to a better future. Jo holds a masters degree in Earth Sciences from the University of Oxford and is chartered through the Geological Society of London. She is an On Purpose fellow, a Climate Reality Leader and a student of System Change through Forum for the Future. Jo wants to lighten the conversation about climate change and provide people with positive energy to tackle the challenge it presents.
