At Lloyds Banking Group, we encourage everyone to be themselves at work – because we believe that we can achieve more together as a diverse group of individuals. For Sarah, this means embracing her faith as a Muslim woman and doing all she can to set a positive example for other Muslim colleagues.
“There are colleagues who feel they don’t have enough ethnic and minority role models at senior levels,” she explains. “As a senior woman who wears a headscarf, I decided to get involved with our Race, Ethnicity and Cultural Heritage network (REACH), and I’m leading the ethnic minority agenda within the division.”
Sarah is currently working with black, Asian and minority ethnic (BAME) colleagues across the company to raise awareness of the issues faced by minorities. She’s also collaborating with other senior leaders within the business and REACH to tackle unconscious biases (attitudes and stereotypes that influence our actions in an unconscious manner) at a strategic level.
We understand the need for a diverse and driven team here at Lloyds Banking Group. If you feel the same way and want to help Britain prosper as part of our team, join us – and we’ll help you prosper, too.
Together we make it possible.
