Nancy Roberts

Nancy has worked in publishing for over 20 years in a variety of production and operations roles, following on from the completion of her postgraduate publishing diploma at West Herts College. Her experience encompasses a wide spectrum of sectors, in children’s, trade and academic publishing. She has a global view of the industry, and brings a uniquely broad perspective gained from across the different sectors in which she has worked.

Nancy founded Business Inclusivity to support the industry in thinking about how we can use diversity and inclusion to solve business problems and deliver a sustainable industry. Business Inclusivity is a social enterprise meaning profits are reinvested in the business to enable broader access to support. As well as working on diversity and inclusion strategies, she also enjoys providing personal coaching and leadership development. She has a PhD in Postcolonial Feminist Literary Theory, and is currently an EMBA student at Cranfield University.
