Experience & Passions

Ishreen is passionate about all humans having a fair crack at work.   She is currently leading a research project into the impact of privilege on performance and opportunity in the workplace.  Her contribution to empowering under-represented groups at work has been recognised in Washington through an award from The International Alliance of Women.

In 2013 Ishreen researched the challenges facing women at work, resulting in a white paper ‘Shooting for the C-Suite’, widely acknowledged as one of the most valuable contributions in the field. This led to her authoring her first book “Authentic.You”

Ishreen thrives on creating innovative ways of addressing current challenges by working with multi-skilled teams.  Her current social project, ‘Heartfulness’ provides retreats in Spain and Morocco to help address mental and physical health challenges for senior professionals.

What clients say

Ishreen Bradley and Mel Larsen have helped Serpentine rebuild our internal culture with a strongly anti-racist foundation. Thanks to them, our staff is better equipped to actively listen to the experiences of our colleagues of colour, who have reported improved feelings of belonging as result of this ongoing work.

Over the nine months since we began working with Ishreen and Mel, we have revised our employee proposition and senior administrators representing communities of colour have joined the Serpentine team.  

What I value most about working with Ishreen is that she has been able to connect with every member of our team on a personal level and we have felt so supported throughout these first stages of this critically important process.
