Emma Altmann-Richer works in People and Capability Group within DWP, leading on Inclusion, helping foster a culture where colleagues can be their authentic selves, feel they have a voice, and feel they belong. Emma works alongside Diversity leads, complementing their important work to remove barriers faced by specific colleagues.
Emma’s personal connection with building Diversity and Inclusion is realised as a leading member of the Civil Service Bi+ Team, within the LGBT+ Network. Emma is also part of departmental action groups for Diversity & Inclusion, and for Sexual Orientation & Gender Identity. Emma is happy to be referred to as ‘she’ or ‘they’.
Emma enjoys playing rugby, and (when lockdown permits) plays fullback for local team Kilburn Cosmos RFC.
