Sarah Nelson

This year, Sarah has built on her success as founder of Sainsbury’s BAME network by growing members from 400 to over 1,200 and has refreshed the strategic agenda of the network, engaging operating board members and senior management, while ensuring the diversity and inclusion agenda continues to progress across the business. She organised and hosted the first intersectional event at Sainsbury’s (Diversity within Diversity) celebrating LGBT colleagues of colour, increasing awareness and creating a lasting and visible partnership between the LGBT and BAME networks. She has created a popular and impactful corporate BAME quiz, leading to more open discussion of BAME topics and organised and led two senior management and line manager engagement sessions for over 80 directors, senior managers and line managers, aiming to engage them on the strategic objectives and role of the BAME network. Outside of Sainsbury’s, Sarah continues to mentor and coach individuals from her BAME mentoring circles and speaks at external events to provide guidance and share her experiences and insights, including engagements at local schools during Black History Month.
