Joanne Lockwood

Inclusion & Belonging Specialist, SEE Change Happen


I am a Diversity, Inclusion and Belonging specialist who engages with organisations to develop policy & best practises to be more inclusive for all people.

Working with leadership teams, challenging biases, I help to develop a vision and strategy for conscious inclusion, with the aim of bringing about positive culture change, employee experience and promote good mental health.

Additionally, I promote transgender awareness and support to businesses and organisations throughout the UK, Europe and elsewhere developing allies’ programmes as assisting in policy and LGBTQ+ inclusion strategies.

As a sought-after Keynote Conference speaker, podcaster, blogger and panellist, I deliver workshops, seminars, a training programmes through the UK, Europe and elsewhere on the topics of Culture Change, Employee Engagement and Experience. I often work with Talent Acquisition and HR teams and advise on building an inclusive employee lifecycle from hire to retire.

I am an Advisory Friend of The Institute of Equality & Diversity Professionals, a member of The Rotary Club and The Professional Speaking Association. I am a subject matter expert for the School of Health Sciences at University of Southampton. As a Fellow of the Royal Society for the encouragement of Arts, Manufactures and Commerce, I believe passionately that “people are people” and, no matter who they are, deserve to be treated with dignity and respect.

I was a contributor and featured in a Channel 4 (UK) documentary called “The Making of Me”, broadcast in February 2019. This documentary was filmed over a 3-year period and detailed my own personal gender transition and its impact on those around me.

I live by the mantra of “Smile, Engage and Educate” in order to promote awareness and understanding to overcome people’s fear of getting it wrong, because the world isn’t only black and white!

My personal gender pronouns are: she/her/hers
