Megan Hector is the Policy and Research Manager at Policy Connect, a not-for-profit cross-party think tank. Policy Connect brings together parliamentarians and government in collaboration with academia, business and civil society to inform, influence and improve UK public policy through debate, research and innovative thinking, so as to improve peoples’ lives.
Megan joined Policy Connect in August 2019, and leads on research and operations for the Higher Education Commission, an independent research commission made up of leaders from the education sector, the business community and the major political parties. The HEC has previously published reports on degree apprenticeships and international students, and its current inquiry is into the experiences of disabled students in higher education, led by Lord David Blunkett, Lord Philip Norton, and Professor Kathryn Mitchell.
Prior to joining Policy Connect, Megan spent a year and a half working in employability and skills in local government, and before that completed an MSc in Gender, Policy and Inequalities at LSE. Megan also holds a BA in English Language and Literature from King’s College London.
