As part of our interview series for our Trustee Network, Taylor Root Partner, Sarah Ingwersen recently spoke to Luisa Edwards, SVP and Deputy General Counsel and Comcast Corporation about being a Trustee for the National Literacy Trust.

What does your Trustee organisation do?

The National Literacy Trust are a national charity that empowers people with the literacy skills they need to succeed in life – helping people change their stories. You can learn more about the National Literacy Trust on their website.

Why were you interest in becoming a Trustee?

My passion for literacy and its importance as a driver of social mobility has made serving as a Trustee a real privilege. The charity is run with dedication and skill at a truly national level and as a group of trustees we are deeply engaged in oversight but also strategy.

What are the benefits can a General Counsel bring to the Trustee role?

There are some real benefits to a General Counsel becoming a trustee. We are ideally placed to navigate organisations and the challenges they face as well as advising and exercising appropriate oversight. In particular, our comfort with regulatory, organisational and, to a degree, financial complexity can help support good choices and stewardship.
