Gemma Wirz

Editor-in-Chief BOLD

Gemma Wirz has a background in editing, writing and digital content production. Originally a scientist-in-training, feeling constrained by the ability to only study one subject at a time, she quickly transferred to talking and writing about a broad range of scientific topics instead. Following a master’s degree in science communication from Imperial College London, she worked for two of the world’s largest conservation organisations, enhancing their social media presence and developing new content and strategy. Gemma has been a consultant for several years, working with non-profit organisations and sustainably-minded companies, producing copy and advising on media relations and digital strategies. Having joined the Jacobs Foundation in May 2020, she is thrilled to continue expanding BOLD – the organisation’s Blog on Learning and Development – as its new Editor-in-Chief.
