Carrie Gracie has been a BBC journalist for more than 30 years and a China watcher for even longer.
In December 2013, the BBC created a new role as China Editor and asked Carrie to take up the post.
Four years later, in January 2018, Carrie resigned that post in protest at unequal pay, publishing an open letter to BBC audiences, and later appearing before a parliamentary committee. After a year long struggle, she won a public apology from the BBC and back-pay. She donated the money to the gender equality charity, the Fawcett Society, to help low paid women facing pay discrimination.
Keen to help drive a change in workplace culture at the BBC, Carrie returned to HQ to work with the campaigning group BBC Women. She currently serves as a senior presenter on the BBC News Channel.
