Diversity and Inclusion Manager – Policy & Training, Jaguar Land Rover
In 2021 I was appointed as the Global D&I Manager at Jaguar Land Rover to grow and support a more diverse workforce ensuring a culture of belonging and inclusivity where everyone can be their authentic selves. I have 10 years of experience working in various industries including Software, Energy and Automotive with my background in Procurement and Contract Management alongside Employee Engagement, Volunteering and Diversity, Equity and Inclusion. I have varied lived experiences of DEI throughout my career and prior, being a 2nd generation British Indian woman and a manager before 30. I hold a unique mix of passion, lived experience, commercial and a fresh approach to DEI. I am lucky enough to manage a very diverse team and the beauty of that means everyone’s needs are different. To be as inclusive as possible, I lead in a style that suits the individuals I am managing. I am very open and honest with my team, creating a safe space for everyone to share and be honest about when they need help or to celebrate when something goes well. I went to school in Birmingham and graduated from the University of Huddersfield with a First in International Business with Mandarin. I have always had a keen interest in the Global landscape of the business world and continue to utilise this in my role. Nominated for Head of Diversity and Inclusion at the Inclusive Awards 23, shortlisted for Head of Diversity at Rainbow Honours Awards 23.
