Governing Body - Lauren Gillett

Widening Participation and Student Communications Officer at UCL & Head of Partnerships at MindMapperUK
Lauren has shaped her career around tackling educational inequality in the UK. After a year teaching through the Teach First programme, 8 years in School Outreach and Liaison in both Higher Education and the Charity sector, her plan is to continue inspiring the next generation to be whatever they want to be – whatever their background.

Outside of her full-time role working in Widening Participation at University College London, she is also the Head of Partnerships at MindMapperUK – a mental health community making mental health support simpler for young people. Later this year, she is organising a Mental Health festival for 500 young people to educate, challenge and celebrate the current youth mental health space. 
She is driven towards achieving success for young people in education and is excited to take on the role of governor to make a real difference to the young people at Safe Start Education.
