Nancy Kelley (she/her)

Headshot of Nancy Kelley

Nancy Kelley is Chief Executive of Stonewall, the LGBTQ+ human rights organisation, which is part of a global movement for change. Inside Stonewall, this means working to make sure colleagues can thrive and make a difference to LGBTQ+ communities. Outside Stonewall, this means working with LGBTQ+ activists here in the UK and around the world, as well as with our partners and supporters. Together, we’re building a path towards the world we imagine, where LGBTQ+ people everywhere are free to be themselves and can live their lives to the full.

Before joining Stonewall, Nancy worked to improve outcomes for vulnerable children, for people experiencing mental distress, for refugees and migrants, and for people living in poverty. In the early part of her career, she worked in policy and advocacy roles, and more recently she worked in roles focused on research and insight. It has been a privilege to have a career where she gets to come to work every day and try and make society fairer and more inclusive, and to be Chief Executive of Stonewall is a dream come true.
