I’m Rachel Coldicutt. This is my blog. Or rather, this is the place where my blog used to be. Mostly I write on Medium now. You can find me here: https://medium.com/@rachelcoldicutt
I’m CEO of internet think tank Doteveryone. We think about how to make digital society as important as the digital economy. I’m also a trustee of the Fawcett Society.
Previously I was a Strategy Director at Friday. And before that I co-founded Caper, was Head of Digital Media at the Royal Opera House, project manager of a large-scale storytelling project at the V&A, Executive Producer at UKTV, Interactive Editor at Endemol and Teens Editor at the BBC. Before that I wrote the dictionary and made CD-roms.
Otherwise, I’m a book-reading, knitting feminist. Before I became a parent I had a weakness for side projects. Most notably, I started and co-ran the influential cultural innovation programme Culture Hack and am co-founder of women’s speaker directory Articulate. Oh, and I have a stutter, which I don’t talk about very much, but I might write a blog post about it one day.
I also wear big necklaces and think jokes are under-rated. My heroes are, in no particular order, Iris Apfel, Nancy Mitford and Tina Fey.
I also take a lot of photographs of my cats.
