Diversity, equality and inclusion are central to Jinita's values and she takes an active role across LCP. She is a Principal Champion for the Multicultural Network and encourages colleagues to learn about different backgrounds and identities.

She has been inspired by other visible allies across the industry and recognises that these are important in creating an empowering environment for LGBT+ colleagues and clients.

Jinita comments that:

"I am proud to be a Project 1000 Role Model because I believe everyone should have the support and the respect they deserve to prosper in their career, no matter what their background is. I want to do my part by being a visible ally for the LGBT+ community".
