Friday 8th March is International Women’s Day. At Good Finance, we wanted to spotlight and celebrate the fantastic women working within social investment in one way or another, with a particular focus on those we haven’t yet heard from. 

Spotlight on Pat McCarthy

Pat McCarthy is Chief Executive Officer of Better Lives, an organisation based in Knowsley, Liverpool, which is working towards a society that respects and values older people. They took on social investment from Kindred in 2021. She has over 20 years in experience of working to support older people and is particularly passionate about fairness and social justice, and the role this plays in ensuring people are able to remain in control of their lives. 

We caught up with Pat to explore…

-    Her experiences as a leader of a frontline organisation in 2024
-    Her take on inclusion and who has inspired her on this topic 
-    Reflections on her career so far, what she’s proud of and top tips for any listeners on how they can celebrate achievements, raise awareness about discrimination and take action to drive gender parity. 

Listen now, and you can also catch up on our previous podcasts in the International Women’s Day series, which features Hanna from Social Investment Business, Wendy from Inclusive Boards and Patricia Hamzahee from Integriti Capital.
