31.12.2021; The Green Park family are delighted to announce that their Chairman, Trevor Phillips, was today honoured with a Knighthood in the New Year Honours List 2022.
Green Park’s CEO, Raj Tulsiani, said “Trevor’s knighthood is very well deserved. He has had an exceptional career to date, not least as our dedicated Chairman, championing diversity and inclusion in the workplace as we work hard to help organisations think differently about talent and leadership in top boardrooms across the UK and globally.
His recent crucial work on Covid-19 has underscored his life-long mission to tackle inequality. Trevor’s knighthood is a fitting reward for his unrelenting mission to achieve unity and progress, bringing issues of social justice and diversity to the forefront of society.
Trevor Phillips has been Chairman of the Board at Green Park since April 2017. He was the founding Chair of the Equality and Human Rights Commission, and the first elected Chair of the Greater London Authority. A well-known broadcaster and writer, he is also the co-founder of the data analytics consultancy Webber Phillips, Chairman of the global freedom of expression campaign charity Index on Censorship; a Senior Fellow at the Policy Exchange think tank; and a Vice-President of the Royal Television Society.
Trevor Phillips today commented, "It is a privilege to have made a contribution to the understanding of Covid and to have the value of data science in tackling inequality recognised in this way. I am grateful to my friends and colleagues at Webber Phillips, particularly my co-founder Richard Webber; and to Raj Tulsiani and the team at Green Park for their support in this work.
The past two years should have taught us all that the diversity of our people is both a benefit and a responsibility. We should respect difference but also remember that we are at our best when we face our challenges as a single nation."
