Ajay Mistry

Since joining Brokerbility, Ajay has been looking at ways to positively impact people of colour. Having previously worked on diversity in the insurance industry, Ajay is keen to address the ethnicity pay gap for the industry. He has nominated and profiled several BAME colleagues for external awards, raising their profile both externally and internally, garnering positive press and leading to senior staff doing more in the BAME space. He’s also introduced cultural days to celebrate diverse heritage. Ajay co-founded the industry-wide Insurance Cultural Awareness Network (iCAN), which was developed to support and recognise careers of multicultural and International colleagues in the insurance industry. He co-chairs a cross-industry committee, focusing them on mentoring and pushing intersectionality. The network is launching a new partnership with a large recruitment firm in May 2019 to enable better employability skills training for BAME colleagues in Insurance. Ajay has also been promoted to co-lead on the steering committee for TNON, developing the leadership skills of BAME network leaders from both public/private organisations. He is also working on multicultural events for the 5th year of “Dive In”, focusing on a public discussion of the ethnicity pay gap, having previously focused on leadership and unconscious bias.
