Sarah Vawda

Following a successful executive career within global businesses as Corporate Development Director,  Sarah now has a portfolio career as Non Executive Director and Board Adviser to international companies undergoing transformation so her diversity and inclusion activities are focused across a wide business environment. She is a Governor of the University of Bedfordshire, an access university which takes a significant proportion of ethnic minority students each year. In recent years she has actively been seeking out opportunities to volunteer where her background and experience could provide value and inspiration. Sarah was recently invited to join a panel at Taylor Wessing on diversity and as a role model for inclusion is actively involved in the wider diversity debate through involvement in many relevant networks. She actively mentors both women and girls from ethnic minority backgrounds, using her networks to open potential doors. As part of this, she has also been appointed to the Board of The Girls Network, a charity promoting mentoring programmes for girls from disadvantaged backgrounds, a disproportionate number of which are from ethnic minority backgrounds.
