Sanjay’s main focus is on practical interventions to accelerate progress of ethnic minorities at EY. He is the Partner Sponsor for ethnic minorities within the overall UK and Ireland D&I strategy. He also sponsors the Future Leaders Programme (a leadership programme for ethnic minority future leaders), CareerWatch and mentoring programmes aimed at accelerating development and obtaining senior leader participation in programmes. He is helping to educate the leadership team on ethnic minority issues, to mitigate any potential unconscious cultural bias in all areas of the business.

Externally, Sanjay sits on the Parker Committee, aiming to increase ethnic diversity on UK Boards, and the Premier League’s Independent Panel on Equality Standards. He is a judge and supporter of the Asian Achiever Awards, Black British Business Awards, and Black PowerList. Sanjay is a regular speaker on the importance of ethnic diversity, and has highlighted additional issues affecting ethnic minority communities by creating an open dialogue around the topics of addiction and mental health in diverse groups. He is also a Trustee of the Aleto Foundation and supports the Miranda Brawn Diversity Leadership Foundation, both focussed on young people from disadvantaged backgrounds.
