Jenni Emery

Global People and Culture Leader at Arup

Jenni Emery is a world leading expert in people, culture and change. She is the Global People and Culture Leader at Arup and the author of Leading for Organisational Change: Building Purpose, Motivation and Belonging (Wiley, 2019).

Jenni’s role at Arup is to devise, develop and deliver a whole new approach to the people side of the business, which draws on Arup’s rich history, deeply held values and guiding purpose – and then includes and transcends all of that to create something as fresh, inspiring, and exceptional as Arup itself.

Since joining Arup, Jenni has transformed a traditional HR function into a value-adding people and culture function, right at the heart of the business. She has developed frameworks to transform how the organisation thinks about leadership, and about how people build relationships and create dynamic communities across boundaries. She is an active voice promoting women in STEM and has brought thought-leadership around collaboration and inclusion to the fore.

Jenni blogs at www.jenemery.com and speaks about change, purpose, leadership, inclusion and the role of business in society. She is currently working on a new book, The Whole Business, about our individual relationships with work, and businesses’ relationships with the communities they serve.
