Francesca Harris is co-chair of PwC’s LGBTQ+ Network, Shine. Her openness and visibility has paved the way for other women to become more visible. Some of the external recognition she’s had includes the Guardian Pride Power List 2018, the Diva Award for Barclays Diversity Champion and the PwC “Making a Difference” award.

Throughout 2020 she has worked tirelessly with network leadership to create virtual prides and connect with international territories, offering support to those  struggling throughout the pandemic. Collectively this has built a sense of community globally for those who were struggling throughout lockdown.

Alongside Shine co-chair Ben Jones, Francesca has developed the network’s  global reach to provide support, connection and awareness as we all learn how to remain healthy and happy during a pandemic.
