  • Salma Atcha works in the Lancaster University Management School on the renowned Entrepreneurs and Leaders in Residence programmes. She supports participants with one of the major trends in recent years: Environmental, Social and Governance reporting, which is important as a forward-looking indicator of business performance.

  • Becky Bawden is Lancaster University Management School's lead on Equality, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI) and a key player in the School's Athena Swan award, supporting and enabling an inclusive and welcoming community in LUMS. From a personal perspective, sustainability and respect for the natural world are important to her.
  • As the lead for the professional Finance Team within LUMS, Danny Cairns works in partnership with senior leadership to support the delivery of the School’s financial aims & objectives.

Stuart also developed a capital development carbon calculator, which has been used to influence the Lancaster University Estates Strategy.

In terms of research interests, he focuses on understanding how academia and industry can collaborate most effectively at the micro, rather than macro, level to deliver clean and sustainable growth.

Carys is a trustee of the Energy Saving Trust Foundation which supports young people facing inequality to have access to climate action education.
  • Paul Turner works to promote the research and engagement activity that takes place at Lancaster University Management School. This includes promoting the research and wider activities of the Pentland Centre through avenues such as the Transforming Tomorrow podcast, which he co-hosts with Centre Director Professor Jan Bebbington, and magazine; the School’s Fifty-Four Degrees magazine; promotional videos; and other written content.
  • Rose White manages the Management School’s portfolio of accreditations and rankings, including our Principles of Responsible Management Education (PRME) membership, a UN-backed initiative whose mission is to ‘transform management education and develop the responsible decision-makers of tomorrow to advance sustainable development.’ She works closely with many members of the Centre to ensure that we’re capturing and reporting all our activities, as well as identifying areas where we can raise the profile of the School.
