Elle joined Collaborate in 2020 and is leading our leadership work with Active Partnerships and in Greater Essex; our place-based work in Thurrock; and with the Centre for Ageing Better.
Elle brings experience in policy making and system change from both local and national government. An economist by training, she worked on international development in Whitehall before being posted to the UN where she negotiated the Sustainable Development Goals. She then transitioned to focus on domestic challenges, leading on devolved economic and social policy for Liverpool City Region, and supporting a shift to more people-centred and participatory policymaking. Most recently, at FutureGov, she facilitated communities to develop place-based investment plans for the Towns Fund.
Elle has a Masters in Public Policy from Harvard Kennedy School, and coaches there in Adaptive Leadership.
