    Jessica Chu
    Group Head of Diversity, Inclusion and Engagement
    RS Components
    Australian born and bred, I arrived in London in 1999 for a six month back-packing holiday and loved it so much, decided to stay! I have spent the last 20 years working in the Financial Services sector across a number of disciplines and for the last decade I've specialised in leading diversity and inclusion programmes at leading banks and now at RS Components a global digital and engineering organisation. As the Group Head of D&I, I am responsible for delivering work that has a real impact on our people and communities we operate in. What I love most is the breadth of my role and the fact that no two days are ever the same! I have two young children, who keep me extra busy when not at work. As a family we love to spend time at the park, having picnics, riding bikes and jumping on the trampoline. I also love to cook, garden, watch movies and read.

In my role I business partner with our APAC, Dubai and London regions. The areas of my role that I love are adding value around employee engagement, performance and most importantly, well-being.
