Hina Nagarajan, Managing Director for Diageo's Africa Emerging Markets, is among fifty women leaders from Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME) backgrounds featured in Cranfield University’s School of Management's Women to Watch list.

The commercial power of a diverse leadership and workforce

The Women to Watch list showcases a wide range of women available for, and ideally suited to, board positions on FTSE 350 companies now or in the near future. 

Dr Doyin Atewologun, Director of the Gender, Leadership and Inclusion Centre at Cranfield University, commented: “This year we challenge assumptions about the type of woman suited to board positions showcasing senior women who come from backgrounds historically under-represented in the senior leadership pipeline."

Meanwhile, Hina said: “My own experience, through my career and of different organisations, has shown me the commercial power of a diverse leadership and workforce."

“Having women from different backgrounds in leadership roles not only creates the inspiration for the next generation, but also brings true representation of the consumer group any business must address," she adds. "For me, having a diversity of backgrounds and of course, gender balance, will ensure a culture where everyone can do their best and enhance the winning potential of any organisation through powerful ideas and solutions.”

Championing inclusivity of ethnic minorities within Diageo and beyond

Hina has also been recognised in INvolve EMpower Ethnic Minority Role Model Lists for her efforts to champion inclusivity of ethnic minorities within Diageo and beyond.

"Diageo is an absolute leader in this space and I am proud to be part of its ongoing commitment to equalising the workplace," said Hina. "This is the perfect place for me to not only grow and achieve my ambitions, but to also grow many more talented people from ethnic minorities along the way.”
