Maya is a founding member of Barclays’ D&I resource group, Inspire, focused on socioeconomic inclusion. She leads Internal and External Engagement, which has included collaborating with the Black Professionals group on events focusing on the intersection between social mobility and ethnicity. Maya contributes to a more inclusive workplace by raising awareness of social mobility and its links with ethnically diverse individuals, as well as other dimensions of diversity. In 2019, Maya founded the Charity Mentoring Programme. It connects Barclays colleagues with employees at charities dedicated to different D&I agendas, including ethnic diversity, gender equity, LGBT+ rights, and socio-economic inclusion. Maya mentors young people, particularly those from lower socio-economic backgrounds and of color, to help raise their aspirations in navigating education and their early career. Outside work, Maya hosts podcast, That’s My Name, featuring individuals globally from ethnically diverse backgrounds to share their experiences with their names, or cultural naming traditions.
