Faith Locken

Faith is chair of Jones Lang LaSalle’s BAME network known as Race for Change (R4C), where her mission is to increase recruitment from diverse backgrounds, improve retention of BAME employees, and improve promotion of BAME employees. She works closely with the Emerging Talent team and mentors BAME undergraduates through graduate scheme applications. To improve retention of BAME talent, Faith launched Career Insight sessions, inviting senior directors of BAME backgrounds to speak about their career experiences to date and improve visibility. She has also assisted in the creation of an unconscious bias training programme for senior management, and has set up a reverse mentoring scheme with the R4C network. Externally, Faith runs weekly tutoring classes for BAME students aged 8 – 10 years old preparing to take the 11+ entrance exam. She is very active in fundraising activities at her church, which is predominantly populated by people of African and Caribbean descent. As a member of the fundraising committee, Faith helps provide funds for the children of her church to receive free weekly singing lessons, perform at various concerts throughout the year, and go on their summer residential course to St. John’s College Cambridge.
