During her tenure at Keble College, The University of Oxford, she will be lecturing and researching ‘The Brawn Review’. This is an independent report where her research has a strong multidisciplinary orientation, drawing on boardroom diversity with a focus on sustainability, inclusion and corporate governance including her “iCHANGES” model. Her report and new book will be finalised while at Oxford and are both set for publication in 2023.

Miranda is described as ‘a brilliant innovative mind’ with ‘a rare combination of intellectual depth and pragmatism’ who is ‘unafraid to raise novel points for progressive change’, ‘very sophisticated in pushing the boundaries’ and having ‘a passionate commitment to equality, inclusion, sustainability and justice.’

In early 2022 she launched the innovative ‘Dr Miranda Brawn Award’ in partnership with the University of Oxford and TMBDLF.

Her inaugural lecture is called “The Brawn Review: Boardroom sustainability, inclusion and corporate governance” forming the 7th Annual Lecture for TMBDLF which made UK history during its launch in 2016.

A common thread in her work is the urgent need for an inclusive, sustainable and just world.
