Anne is motivated by pluralism – an ethic which considers diversity to be an opportunity, and an essential ingredient to build peaceful societies. Her career in both Government and major Foundations has focused on developing policies and practical solutions to develop pluralistic dispositions and societies, ensuring everyone has the opportunity to participate and have a voice.

Anne worked for the Aga Khan Foundation (AKF) from March 2010 to 2018 and was responsible for AKF programmes in Europe. The aim of the AKF in Europe is to improve the quality of life of people, with a focus on immigrant heritage communities.

Prior to that she worked in the UK Cabinet Office providing advice to the Government on evidence based policy making.
