Sara Bell, Radius Consultant
Equity, Diversity and Inclusion professional with a specialist People background.
Sara has 18 years’ experience working in specialist People roles in large organisations, most recently as the Head of Talent, Inclusion and Diversity and Development. She is passionate about creating measurable progress on equity and inclusion, an approach informed both by behavioural science and a unique background in Talent Management, Organisation Design and Development as well as Change Management Consulting. Sara’s industry experience spans telecoms, technology, FMCG, financial services and insurance.
Sara recognises that her lived experience of four intersecting marginalised identities means she often looks at the world differently, and this can be her super-power. She has co-founded two employee networks and worked with over 30 others in her role as Regional I&D Lead.
Sara joined Radius Networks – the global experts in Employee Resource Group (ERG) development and empowerment – in early 2022. As an Associate Consultant, she works with Radius to support some of the world’s biggest brands and maximise the impact of their greatest asset in the progression of EDI – their ERG’s.
