About Isabel Oakley Chapman
Isabel Oakley Chapman is a Communications, Inclusion and Diversity Specialist who has worked with young people, parents and disadvantaged, isolated communities for the last twelve years in various settings, including the Criminal Justice System, Peabody Housing Association, #techmums and inner-city schools and estates. Isabel specialises in increasing access to opportunities through technology and platforming the voices and experiences of those who are often forgotten and hard to reach. Isabel has managed multi-stakeholders campaigns and programmes across the private and public sectors, focusing on social change, technology, inequality and youth violence.
Isabel is an established public speaker, including chairing debates in parliament and speaking on the ‘Women in Tech’ panel at the Parliamentary Internet Conference. Isabel is passionate about making things happen and believes parents often need support with understanding the ever-evolving technologies to increase aspirations for future generations. This recently led Isabel to write an article for Housing Technology about why parents are the missing link in the lack of diversity in technology conversation. Isabel is considered an expert in the Gender Equality field and is a qualified Safe Lives YPVA (Young People's Violence Advisor) & an ISVA (Independent Sexual Violence Advisor). Isabel runs her own consultancy, Triple D Media, which encourages organisations and women to Discover, Diversify and Disrupt.
