Institute Founder and Director 

Prof. Dame Henrietta L. Moore

Professor Henrietta L. Moore is the Founder and Director of the Institute for Global Prosperity and the Chair in Culture Philosophy and Design at University College London (UCL). A leading global thinker on prosperity, Professor Moore challenges traditional economic models of growth arguing that to flourish communities, businesses and governments need to engage with diversity and work within environmental limits. Her work crosses disciplines, from social science to the arts to business innovation and she applies these different perspectives to inform research and policy at all levels.

Her recent work has seen her transition beyond academia into the public sphere providing commentary on topics such as Universal Basic Services, Brexit, Artificial Intelligence, displaced people and the gender pay gap as a respected leading intellectual. She retains ongoing interests on issues of globalisation, mass migration, gender, social transformation and livelihood strategies, new technologies and agroecology which have shaped her career and her engagement with policy making. She is committed to involving grassroots communities in the production of new types of knowledge through citizen science.

Professor Moore is an Advisory Panel Member for the Dasgupta Review of the Economics of Biodiversity and part of the Rebuilding Macroeconomics Management Team. She serves as President of the British Institute in Eastern Africa and on the Scientific Advisory Council at DEFRA, UK Government. She is a Trustee at the Barbican Centre Trust, a Fellow of the British Academy, a Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts, an Academician of the Learned Societies for the Social Sciences, and a Member of the Institute of Directors.

In 2016 Professor Moore was made Dame Commander for the British Empire for contribution to social sciences, services to business, policy and the arts. Professor Moore is the Chair and Co-founder of SHM Productions a research and strategy consultancy using academic insights to boost business innovation and the founding trustee of the SHM Foundation which works globally for positive social change in learning, health, citizenship and the arts.

Professor Moore was formerly William Wyse Chair of Social Anthropology at the University of Cambridge, the LSE Deputy Director for research and external relations, and Director of the Gender Institute at the LSE from 1994-1999.

As well as Director of the Institute, Professor Moore is the lead academic on the ESRC-funded RELIEF Centre aiming to improve levels of prosperity in Lebanon, the country with the world’s largest number of refugees per capita. She is co-Chair of the Social Prosperity Network, Chair of the London Prosperity Board, and Chair of FastForward 2030 a network and collaborative platform for businesses aiming to incorporate the Sustainable Development Goals into their business models.
