Cath Denholm

Cath is the Chief Operating Officer for EHRC. She joined the Commission in June 2020, following 20 years in the health service in Scotland in primary care, health improvement strategy and, latterly, in the creation of Scotland’s new national public health agency, Public Health Scotland. Cath’s interests are public service leadership, strategic change and achieving value for public money, firmly underpinned by fairness, equality and human rights. She has always been driven to finding ways to make the agenda of equality and human rights meaningful and a practical lever for organisational improvement, rather than a barrier. She currently represents the Equality and Human Rights Commission as the European representative on the GANHRI Sub Committee for Accreditation of NHRIs. She was part of the Scottish National Action Plan for Human Rights (SNAP) collaboration since its inception in 2010 until 2020. She is also a Board member of the Joint Nature Conservation Committee of the UK and an Honorary Member of the UK Faculty of Public Health, awarded for her work on human rights and public health.
