Jatin Patel

Jatin’s role as Executive Sponsor for the Multicultural network is to strategically drive the network at a national level, push its progress across the organisation and represent the network externally. He has sponsored TSB’s approach to understanding the key drivers of ethnic minority under-representation across the Bank, and has used that to develop the Bank’s ethnic minority D&I strategy. Jatin has represented the ethnicity network at external events, including sponsoring the inaugural ‘Investing in Race Conference’, hosted by the SPM group. At this event, he spoke about TSB’s role as a challenger bank, explained how their approach to diversity and inclusion helps meet business objectives, and shared personal perspectives on why diversity is important. Internally, he has raised awareness of ethnic diversity through sharing his own personal experiences about religious and cultural celebrations, and providing ideas to address under-representation at Exec and Board level. Outside of TSB, Jatin has taken part in a cross-organisational mentoring circle as a lead mentor, and often speaks at conferences and organisations advocating the importance of diversity and inclusion. He has also done work to help improve education and access for young people from under-privileged backgrounds, particularly in areas with high concentrations of ethnic minorities.
