Senior D&I Partner (Regional)

Mani Sidhu

As Senior Diversity & Inclusion (D&I) Partner (Regional) at Innovate UK KTN, I am great at thinking creatively, out of the box, in a solution-based way.

I have worked in D&I for over 7 years and in Human Rights for 15 years. My background spans across the globe and sectors, working for the United Nations, Governments, NGOs, Education, the private and public sector. I am interested in positive mental health, and have worked as a life coach/therapist in schools and for the LGBTQ+ community. I have worked for LGBTQ+ equity and acceptance especially for underrepresented groups within this community and won many awards and recognitions for this.

In my role at KTN, I will be working on the No Limits programme, focusing primarily on involving more diverse candidates to the programme especially from a regional perspective.

If you require a fresh pair of eyes on a project, or someone to talk over an idea with, I am very good at spotting gaps which may have been missed, especially from a D&I perspective.
