The Economist Educational Foundation
Emily is the Founder and Chief Executive of The Economist Educational Foundation, a charity that empowers young people to take more control over their lives and futures by enabling them to have their say on social, political and economic issues. She set up the Foundation from within The Economist in 2012, and has since led the design and delivery of its programmes including an annual event for primary schools, a network of school news clubs which develops critical thinking skills, and online teaching resources to support current affairs education in the classroom. She’s passionate about giving young people access to quality journalism, exciting opportunities to discuss current affairs, and platforms to make their voices heard.
