As founder and CEO, Gian has placed inclusion at the core of TLC Lions. On induction and joining the company, joiners share their stories to provide others with an understanding of what it’s like to ‘be in my shoes’. The company has had internal get-togethers to discuss BAME and held events with companies such as AXA, Lloyd’s, PwC, Deloitte, Just Eat and Hyatt on this topic globally. The outcome of these efforts has been a more welcoming and open culture, staff speaking up about challenges at home as well as feeling confident to bring their own cultures to the workplace. Gian has created a safe space for his team to speak to each other regardless of background and encouraged empathy and emotions to be displayed and shown as a strength. Externally, Gian has supported Alzheimers Society during a dinner discussing mental health in the South Asian community, and joined the advisory board of This Can Happen, a mental health conference opened by Prince William in 2018, to ensure these discussions are continued. He also provided the content for the Lloyds Bank National Business Awards in the Grosvenor House focusing on the story of a man of colour. Gian has spoken globally on the topic of culture to ensure it is widespread, and not confined to the UK. He has also spoken in schools across the country around ethnicity to ensure that BAME young people entering the workplace are encouraged and inspired.
