Jatin Patel

In 2015, Jatin helped set-up TSB’s first ethnicity network by becoming the network’s Executive Sponsor. Sitting within TSB’s wider Inclusion Network, the ethnicity network aims to raise awareness of ethnic diversity in the workplace, to help celebrate cultural diversity and to attract, retain and develop the best talent within TSB, regardless of ethnicity. Jatin has represented the ethnicity network at external events, and recently, invited 15 key recruitment suppliers to a round table discussion where he shared his plan to address BAME representation in TSB. Externally, Jatin has also done work in the field of education to help improve standards and access for young people from under-privileged backgrounds, particularly in areas with high concentrations of people of BAME origin.
