“Unfortunately, many women reach a glass ceiling, particularly in the corporate world. I am deeply committed to helping more of them break that glass ceiling through expanding access to top business education,” Lord Laidlaw, Chairman, Laidlaw Foundation.

The Laidlaw Foundation proudly introduces a brand new partnership with London Business School, which aims to support the education of women in order to enable them to achieve greater success in their careers.

Hello! I am fascinated with all things human- & design-related. My university research focused on the effects of design on patient wellbeing in hospitals. I employed ethnographic methods to investigate whether design elements, such as colour, light, and form can have a significant impact on medical recovery. Throughout my degree, I also took modules in ethnographic documentary filmmaking, philosophy of science, and anthropology of architecture among other (less interesting-sounding) things. If you need any guidance on using the site (or if you just want to chat), contact me using the chat app on the Network website, or drop a line at!
