Cat is a thought and practice leader in design for social good. She is passionate about how design practices can come together, and with other sectors, to achieve systemic change for the toughest social issues. She combines a background in policymaking, a Masters in Graphic Design and leadership positions in service design agencies (FutureGov and Uscreates) working across the public, private and 3rd sector. As one of the founding members of the UK Government’s Policy Lab, Cat pioneered the use of data science and design in policymaking, and introduced speculative design to Government for the first time. Cat speaks widely about the value of design (including a TedX on data and design) and co-presents BBC Radio 4 The Fix, bringing a design approach to 7 million listeners. At the Design Council, Cat brings together design practices of architecture and the built environment, public sector design and business innovation to create inclusive places and support people live healthier, happier and safer lives.
