Mirra Sondhi

As the Founder and Chair of the Hindu Society at Schroders, which Mirra setup within 3 months of joining the firm, she has created a platform that encourages members to network across the firm and learn about Hindu culture. The events organised span across the themes of Hindu teachings, significance of Hindu festivals and learning about the Indian and British Asian contribution, both historic and present day. Further, she organised an event to raise awareness and commemorate the contribution of the Commonwealth nations in the First World War which had representation from the Armed Forces and Black Professionals Networks. Through her role at Schroders, Mirra collaborated with internal recruitment and senior management to design standard job description templates which are being used to attract a diverse set of BAME talent and those that have flexible working needs into technology roles. Notably, Mirra is also one of the founding members of the Professionals Network, established in December 2017 at the Houses of Parliament under Lord Jitesh Gadhia. The objective of the forum is to enable leaders of BAME groups across organisations to raise cultural awareness and implement initiatives to drive ethnic minority inclusion, from student life through to workplace.
