Since joining PwC, Dara has had had a proactive role in Diversity outside of her day job in Consulting. In 2013, she set up the PwC Diversity Mentoring scheme to encourage students from under represented backgrounds to seek and gain careers in professional services. The scheme started with a pilot of 18 students and now supports 200 students across the UK with employability skills and applications. 60% of these students are from BAME backgrounds. She has chaired the PwC Multicultural Business Network since 2015. Last year the network relaunched, and now has over 900 members. Last year, Dara led a national wide campaign encouraging conversations on race at PwC, called Colourbrave.  On a day to day level, Dara has acted as a role model, coach, mentor and sounding board to many BAME colleagues and proactively championed diversity and inclusion across the firm, seeing the firm make its ground-breaking decision to publish its BAME pay gap. Despite a demanding role in consulting, and achieving promotion to Chief of Staff, Dara continues to travel far and wide to lead discussions and participate in workshops that contribute to BAME representation at PwC.
