Executive Director, Global Choices
Inge Relph is known as an insightful strategist and policy innovator, who sees a significant opportunity for the financial sector to drive a new wave of systemic change and to collaborate to achieve the Environmental and Social Development Goals. She led the sustainability practice of a Swiss Fintech, is a Board member of the Responsible Finance and Investment Foundation and a member of the G20 Sustainable Finance Innovation Inquiry, advising on digital finance innovations like blockchain and tokenisation for social and natural capital markets. She also advises Procivis a Swiss digital identity company looking at digital trends and democracy.
Whilst holding executive positions with British Gas and British Airways Inge co- founded the London Chamber of Commerce Women in Business group, followed by the Arab International Women’s Forum, a platform to build business and understanding in the Middle East. Moving into international development, she became Senior Policy Advisor to ‘The Elders’, a group that included President Carter, Mary Robinson, Kofi Annan and Gro Brundtland, during the landmark SDG and COP21 negotiations. A stint in Egypt, mentoring women leaders through conflicts in Iraq, Libya and Syria, confirmed her motivation to direct the best to the poorest, especially women for global economic growth and stability. Party to a number of consultations at the Vatican, Inge believes that leaders need to be nurtured from within and has led many corporate events on values driven leadership. She is currently Executive Director of Global Choices, a new USA Family Foundation educating intergenerations on the crucial economic, social and environmental decisions we have to make now for our planetary wellbeing.
