On Purpose

“I’m passionate about social innovation and connecting people, organisations and ideas.”

Kat Davis

Prior to joining On Purpose, Kat worked for over 6 years as an architectural designer and urban strategist in London. Her experience in the built environment industry spans masterplanning and building design with a key focus on public and stakeholder consultation. Most recently, she co-initiated and ran Industri[us] – a ‘meanwhile use’ initiative – which transforms waste materials through upcycling to encourage local enterprise, innovation and training. Kat completed the first part of her architectural studies at the University of Cambridge and gained her Professional Diploma in Architecture from The Sir John Cass Faculty of Art, Architecture and Design (formerly LMU). She has volunteered extensively with charities and NGOs in East Africa, Southeast Asia and the UK.
