We are thrilled to announce a new era for Transform with the exciting appointment of not one, but two dynamic leaders as Co-CEOs! As of April this year, we are welcoming Shoba Ram and Jane Slater as they take on the role of CEO together.

Both Shoba and Jane are committed to making safer drug laws a reality and have an unwavering drive for change. This new co-leadership model reflects our belief in collaboration and will undoubtedly allow us to build on our success as a charity.

Introducing Shoba Ram:

We are thrilled to see Shoba join us at Transform. A dynamic and ethical leader in the drugs field, shaped by over two decades of working with those most affected by drug policy across communities, healthcare systems and in criminal justice services. Shoba has a profound commitment to addressing the harm, discrimination and oppression associated with failed drug policy which she has demonstrated across a vast portfolio of innovative research and practice.

I am honoured and excited to be joining Transform as Co-CEO at a time when there is such momentum in drug policy reform. Working alongside Jane, a dedicated team of experts and a strong board of Trustees, I’m confident that we can lead Transform into a new era of impactful advocacy and system shift. - Shoba Ram, Co-CEO

Re-introducing Jane Slater:

We are excited to see Jane Slater begin this new position after her highly successful tenure as Deputy CEO of Transform over recent years. Jane first began working at Transform 17 years ago and has been a core team member ever since. In particular, Jane established and has managed our Anyone’s Child campaign that amplifies the voices of those who have been directly impacted by drug policy failures.

I am delighted to be taking on this role and to co-lead Transform into the next phase of our work. Shoba brings a wealth of experience and I’m excited to collaborate with her at this critical moment in bringing about fundamental change to our drug laws. - Jane Slater, Co-CEO

From our Chair of the Board, Vicky Unwin:

I am delighted that Shoba is joining our committed team at Transform, and will be working with Jane as Co-CEOs. Between them they have a wealth of experience in the field of drug policy and activism, both of which are sorely needed to push forward our agenda for legal regulation and decriminalisation to make lasting changes to the UK’s outmoded drug policies.

Together, both Shoba and Jane will lead Transform to even greater success. Thank you for your support on this exciting journey as we make safer drug laws a reality.
