Our alumna, Ruth Hunt, is joining the House of Lords

10th September 2019

Ruth Hunt (English, 1998) has been made a crossbench life peer in Theresa May’s parting honours list.

The prime minister’s resignation honours are granted by the Queen at the request of an outgoing prime minister. These honours and peerages follow the resignation of Theresa May.

Ruth was the chief executive of Stonewall until August 2019. She was appointed in August 2014, having worked in senior positions in the organisation since 2011. Many congratulations to Ruth on receiving this honour!
