Frances House

Deputy Chief Executive, IHRB

Expertise 

Frances has twenty years’ experience in the field of business and human rights and brings an important blend of strategic planning and practical programme delivery on the ground in a number of regions.

Current Work

In her current role, Frances is responsible for the overall operational management of IHRB as well as having a particular focus on delivery of our Migrant Worker programme and its leadership activities with global brands. She works closely with IHRB’s trustees on strategy, governance and financial oversight.

Before IHRB

Frances was Policy Director at the International Business Leaders Forum, Vietnam Researcher with Human Rights Watch, and worked with the European Commission in Brussels and Vietnam on humanitarian programmes with asylum-seekers. A former trustee of Amnesty International UK, Care International UK and Streetkids International UK, she also sits on IKEA’s Stakeholder Advisory Board.

I’m keen to explore how business and human rights can grow from pockets of good corporate practice to serious scale across whole industries.
