In 2013, Dara set up the PwC Diversity Mentoring scheme to encourage students from underrepresented backgrounds to seek and gain careers in professional services. The scheme now supports 200 students across the UK with employability skills and applications; 60% of whom are from BAME backgrounds. She has chaired the PwC Multicultural Business Network since 2015 and acts as a role model, coach, mentor and sounding board to many BAME colleagues and proactively championed diversity and inclusion across the firm. Dara has also been an ambassador for careers in the city for BAME students, an SEO scholar, spoken at numerous events, schools and universities and acted as a mentor informally and formally to black students primarily. In 2015, she organised a youth unemployment conference (under a UN initiative) and in 2016 she joined the founding team of UK Black Tech.
