Better our Best

We will never be perfect, and we always have more to learn. As long as we use data, experience, and dialogue to grow and improve, we are moving in the right direction.

We work on activities that do the most to advance our mission, and rigorously measure our impact to guide where we spend our time and resources.

Our leadership team

Prior to joining Generation, Mangala held leadership positions in schools, colleges and the charity sector in England and India.

Hugh Chatfield — Director of Growth

Hugh leads our Growth, Data and Operations team. When out of work, Hugh spends as much time as possible running in the mountains, claiming that fell running, ultra-running marathon running and trail running are actually very different sports and worrying that he doesn’t have the right shoes.

Stefanie Hurrell — Director of Admissions

Stefanie leads our Admissions team, working with our sector partners to reach and support potential applicants to access our life-changing skills boot camps. Outside of work, Stefanie can be found attempting to learn Danish and running away to Scandinavia any chance she gets.
