Sarah is the Group Financial Controller and chair of the BAME network at Sainsbury’s. As a longstanding member of the Race Steering Group, Sarah has actively influenced Sainsbury’s diversity and inclusion agenda and is committed to help Sainsbury’s achieve its vision of being the most inclusive retailer where all colleagues can fulfil their potential. In 2017 Sarah founded Sainsbury’s first ever BAME network, leading a number of networking events and initiatives for employees across the business. Through this, almost 400 colleagues were reached through organised events and the network’s social platform. Sarah is passionate about ensuring all individuals feel included within the organisation and that they can reach their full potential and as such, mentors a number of BAME colleagues. Outside of Sainsbury’s, Sarah continues to mentor and coach individuals from her BAME mentoring circles and speaks at external events to provide guidance and share her experiences and insights.
