In 2020, Omar engaged GSK’s Chairman of the Board and gained commitment to further diversify the Board, include race and ethnicity targets in the annual report and to implement annual mandatory inclusion training for the Board and the CET. Omar also drove the progress of GSK’s race and ethnicity agenda as a member of the Global Ethnicity Council; developing objectives with clear tangible actions. His ongoing collaboration with HR shaped and developed global I&D and talent programmes including introducing new mandatory I&D training, refreshed leadership training and an Inclusion Dialogue toolkit to help teams have impactful and action focussed conversations about inclusion.
