Kate Levine is an independent communications consultant, specialising in working with organisations of all sizes that seek to drive positive change. Since August 2020, she has worked for a range of corporates and NGOs, such as Women’s Aid, The Climate Coalition, Unilever, WUKA and AB InBev. She speaks regularly at forums and conferences on purpose, campaigning and activism.
For five years from 2015-2020, Kate was the Global Activism and Communications Director at The Body Shop. Her team led the brand’s activism, including the award-winning Forever Against Animal Testing campaign, achieving mass consumer engagement and delivering 8.3 million signatures of support to the United Nations. Responsible for The Body Shop’s global communications and activism strategies and its campaigning, Kate linked positive social change and business practices and helped re-establish the brand’s authority as a campaigner and environmental leader. Before leaving the company in 2020, Kate, together with her team, launched a campaign on domestic abuse, in response to the soaring rates of abuse connected to COVID lockdowns around the world.
Before The Body Shop, Kate worked for many years in PR agencies, including Hill+Knowlton Strategies, Cohn and Wolfe (now BCW) and Pagefield. Her passion has long been for effective communication around sustainability and social change. Her first big project was nearly 20 years ago on a wind farm initiative with Greenpeace and energy company npower, and continued with sustainability work for corporations like HSBC, Kingfisher and B&Q, as well as projects like trans inclusion for working LGBT+ charity Stonewall.
