Tabatha Bruce

General Counsel

As our General Counsel, Tabatha is a trusted and key advisor to the Board, CEO and Executive Team and a guardian of Girl Effect, globally. Handling our legal affairs, risk, compliance and governance matters, Tabatha keeps sight across the whole organization to provide professional, pragmatic advice and support for all our teams, on all aspects of our work.    

Before Girl Effect, Tabatha was legal counsel and proud 'Mo Sista' for the global men's health charity, Movember, joining there after a number of years in senior legal commercial roles within Canon UK & EMEA and formative years in private practice litigation and IP. 

In her leadership role, Tabatha partners with the CEO and Executive Team on matters of key organisational, strategic, financial and reputational importance and with key stakeholders across all our offices, on matters of implementation and operation. 

Always having Girl Effect’s purpose and core responsibilities front of mind, Tabatha’s incisive thinking, integrity and ‘unflappability’ are much appreciated by those who work with her - she is that someone you go to if you have a concern or don’t know who to ask or what to do next.
