“If we tackle unconscious bias we will help change the world."— Ingrid Marsh
Ingrid Marsh is a Diversity Trainer, NLP practitioner and a Voice Coach helping teams and individuals to express their voices through the art of public speaking. She is the founder of Reboot, who through using mindfulness, is disrupting the way unconscious bias workshops have been delivered to date. She has been an activist for gender equality in various capacities for nearly ten years and is the founder of Women With Voices. Through her work on raising awareness of unconscious gender and racial bias prevalent in Artificial Intelligence, Ingrid is also a member of the IEEE Global AI Ethics Outreach Committee.
Using mindful ways to cultivate a well, inclusive and collaborative workforce, Ingrid supports organisations to leverage diversity of thought and deliver business value through a cognitively diverse workforce. Having much experience in unconscious bias training and being aware that it is not always as effective as it should or could be, she developed new mindful techniques to improve the process. The techniques are used to stop teams making decisions on autopilot, to extend their inclusion net and to test for bias. Google Campus described her as a fantastic public speaker and her community as passionate, energetic, raw and thought-provoking.
She is a serial entrepreneur who has owned everything from a vintage lifestyle shop in Islington to a tech online food marketplace. In her earlier career, Ingrid worked in Account Management serving major financial institutions, such as JP Morgan, Goldman Sachs and Morgan Stanley. Her communications skills have led to voice-overs for radio ads aired on the BBC and local radio stations. She was a life coach columnist for The South London Press Newspaper and radio station Asian Star. She has appeared as an expert on Nick Ferrari's LBC radio show and joined panels on OH TV sky 199 alongside MP Tessa Jowell and UK Olympian Will Bayley.
