Kate Pickett, PhD is a Senior Lecturer of Epidemiology at the University
of York and a National Institute for Health Research Career Scientist.
She studied physical anthropology at Cambridge, nutritional sciences at
Cornell and epidemiology at Berkeley before spending four years as an
Assistant Professor at the University of Chicago.
With Richard Wilkinson
(also shown in photo), Kate co-wrote The Spirit Level: Why More Equal Societies Almost Always Do Better
, which presents a meta-analysis of data from sources such as the UN,
the World Health Organization, the World Bank, and the US Census and
arrives at the undeniable conclusion that social inequality harms
everyone. The book outlines how we must remove economic impediments to
individuals feeling valued to allow for the flourishing of human
potential. The authors also co-founded The Equality Trust, an empowering organization prompting citizen action to restructure equal societies for the common good.
