Caroline Frankum

Caroline is a powerful and vocal agent for change, refusing to be seduced by ‘progress’, advocating instead for urgent and committed change. Over the past 12 months, Caroline has focused on three major initiatives. She has pushed to implement a Zero Tolerance Policy on any discriminatory or harassing language or behaviour. She has also undertaken pro bono work to support Kantar’s Reykjavik Index for Leadership, which was created by Kantar and Women Political Leaders to support the journey of gender equality through substantial and meaningful research, and is now rolling out across all G20 countries. Caroline also plays an active role in Kantar’s partnership with the Special Olympics, supporting 5 million people in 170 countries by driving the ‘Inclusion Revolution’ and ‘Unity in Diversity’. Meeting the Special Olympics Athletes, presenting medals to the female Power Lifters, and being the keynote speaker at The Global Youth Summit whilst she attended the Special Olympics 2019 World Games inspired Caroline to get intellectual disabilities on to the agenda of the world’s Top 500 brands and help develop a 360 mentorship programme between senior leaders at Kantar and Special Olympics Athletes. Externally, Caroline mentors a diverse mix of inspiring women at different career levels across the globe, supporting them to flourish in their professional lives and ultimately progress to senior roles. She is Kantar’s Exec sponsor for Pride in the UK, she continues to do pro bono D&I work for the Marketing Research Society, and she is working with CEOs of other leading organisations to drive a CEO pledge of commitment to creating an environment where the only barriers to progress are personal choice and professional competence.
