Four Deloitte employees recognised as EMpower Ethnic Minority Role Models 2018, presented by the FT

31 May 2018

Deloitte’s Mitul Shah and Anbreen Kahn have made the EMpower Ethnic Minority Executives 2018 list. Meanwhile Shilpa Shah and Nadine Dyer have ranked amongst the EMpower Ethnic Minority Future Leaders 2018. Both lists are presented by the FT.

Mitul Shah leads Deloitte’s reward consulting practice and is a lead mentor in the Business in the Community (BiTC) mentoring circles. Anbreen Kahn is an indirect tax partner and heads up the Deloitte Muslim Network (DMN) for the UK firm. Shilpa Shah is a director in consulting and a Respect and Inclusion lead for technology consulting. Nadine Dyer, an assistant manager, leads the client care programme and is the co-chair of the Deloitte Multicultural Network.

Commenting on the rankings, Emma Codd, managing partner for talent of Deloitte UK and Deloitte North West Europe, said:

“Having four of our role models recognised in this prestigious list is a great achievement; both for the individuals and for us as a firm. These individuals are also – crucially - at different levels of seniority within the firm, demonstrating our commitment to developing leaders at every level. On a wider scale, we have committed that by 2021, 10% of our partners will be BAME. In order to achieve these aims, we continue to focus on providing a truly inclusive culture, underpinned at all times by respect, alongside targeted actions relating to aspects of our career lifecycle.”

CEO and founder of EMpower, Suki Sandhu added: “Our lists exist to drive the empowerment of ethnic minorities within business. Role modelling is fundamental to ensuring equality of opportunity and more inclusive workplace cultures. Those who have achieved personal success have a responsibility to inspire the next generation of ethnic minority leaders, and those featured on our lists are more than living up to it. Through these lists we hope to encourage individuals and businesses to stand up and work together to drive change in our society and workplaces - doing so will inspire the diverse leaders of tomorrow.”
