Senior Vice President, GLP
It has been an interesting journey working across geographies and cultures (Pakistan, Netherlands, Sweden, UK, China, South America, Middle East, Singapore). Often, I came across unexpected prejudices and had to use cultural competency to turn these challenges into opportunities. With a South Asian background, I realized how much is still unknown to the world about different cultures and how education plays a fundamental role in addressing these critical issues.
It is great to see that organizations like Roots Inspire are setting up real and relevant D&I tools for corporations. This will not only help corporations and mentees but also societies at large. We need to keep communicating and sharing experiences and I am looking forward to be a part of this journey.
