“I’M ON A MISSION TO … EMPOWER PEOPLE TO ENSURE THEIR RIGHTS ARE MET IN THE WORKPLACE.

DONNA PATTERSON

Founder of Let’s Talk Work (she/her)

Donna is the founder of Let’s Talk Work, an organisation which helps individuals ensure their rights at work are met. Donna founded Let’s Talk Work after she successfully won an employment tribunal claim against one of largest supermarkets in the UK. In 2021, Donna experienced discrimination when she came back to work after maternity leave. Facing expensive legal costs, Donna chose to represent herself throughout the proceedings and won the tribunal against Morrisons in October 2022.

With her 15 years of negotiation and resolution management experience, Donna now works to demystify the self-representation process for employment tribunal claims, support people to have difficult conversations at work and help drive change in how employers treat working parents.

When not working, Donna is a busy parent of two small boys and can be found catching up with friends whilst eating good food.

My favourite TED talk:
