Emily Horton

2020/21 Fellow

Emily is a financial journalist, joining us from Dow Jones, where she covered everything from the impact of Covid-19 on the economy, to the invention of social impact bonds and personal finance tips from money gurus.

She started her career in public relations working for the British Red Cross, former pension minister Sir Steve Webb and communications consultancy Seven Hills.

With a background in anthropology and economics, Emily has worked on national campaigns to tackle loneliness with the Jo Cox foundation; raise awareness of unaccompanied child refugees in Kent; improve social care for isolated elderly people and bolster financial literacy among millennials.

As a dyslexic writer, Emily believes that diversity (gender, ethnic, neuro, LGBTQ+) are all crucial to creating a society where everyone can flourish.
