Christine is a disability and age-inclusive inclusive researcher, designer, and innovator. She founded and leads Open Inclusion, based in the UK and operating globally. Open is a global leader in market, social, design and innovation research that includes disabled and older participants. We help our clients better understand the impacts of functional human diversity to inform better decisions and empower better solutions. We work with governments, academia, large commercial organisations, NGOs, accelerators and entrepreneurial start-ups to help them understand their target markets / audiences more broadly and completely to identify, design and deliver more valuable outcomes.

My passion for inclusive research started when I looked for support in my relationship with my brother who is autistic. Collaboarting my neurodiverse intitiative The Bridge Between on an inhouse project with d.fferentology ‘finding brands through a different lens’ explored how neurodiverse audiences interact with brands and gives insight into how brands can resonate with this at times overlooked consumer group. I am co-chair for MRS Unlimited and help share and direct knowledge for inclusive neurodiverse and disabled research. Bringing my initiative and life experience into the research world has been eye opening in understanding how necessary it is to include neurodiversity in all forms of society and research.

The first part of my career was spent focusing on disability sport development in London, advising various National Governing Bodies of sport, local authorities, delivery partners, and charities to enhance the inclusiveness of their projects to disabled people. Also, I project-managed high-profile projects such as 'Inclusive United' on behalf of The FA and Sport England, and a Sport England-funded 'Motivate East' project on behalf of the London Legacy Development Corporation to increase disabled people's activity levels.

Around four years' ago, I decided to switch my career to focus on what I have always wanted to do - applied / strategic research. I now work for London Sport as their Senior Insight Officer bringing together valuable strategic insights to make a tangible difference to organisations and individuals living in London, and conduct key research projects that aim to change the London population's physical activity behaviours.
