VCCP is delighted to announce that Sonia Gilchrist has been appointed as the agency’s Head of Diversity & Inclusion, to further support Vice Chairman Julian Douglas and VCCP’s on-going initiatives. She will balance her new role with her current position as Business Director on O2.
Sonia has led the inclusion charge at her previous agencies before joining VCCP last September and was recognised as a WACL Future Leader in 2017. She has written for Campaign and The Guardian on BAME diversity and disability inclusion within business. Last year she carried out pro-bono work for the Valuable 500, a charity set up to put disability on the leadership agenda at a global scale.
Sonia’s new role starts with immediate effect and she will be leading a group of talented and motivated individuals from across the agency. This collective will be tasked with representing everyone in the agency and delivering tangible outcomes that make VCCP a more inclusive company.
It's amazing to be part of an agency who truly champion D&I and, as such, have had a Head of D&I in place for the past few years. I'm delighted to have been appointed into this role and excited to continue the brilliant work the agency already does. Sonia Gilchrist
