Sabiha Patel

I am the University’s strategic lead on enabling senior leaders to mainstream and embed equality and inclusion across all aspects of the business and I also drive the development and implementation of the University’s Equality and Inclusion Framework.

I have significant HE professional services experience gained through a variety of roles in Faculty, Central Services and Corporate HR Services.  As Head of Equality and Inclusion, I have significant experience of equality and inclusion in the HE environment, with distinctive experience of equality and inclusion in the student experience.  I am a member of the University’s HR Leadership Team, enabling our senior leaders to maximise the contribution of all our colleagues in support of the delivery of the University’s Strategic Plan, Student Education, Research and Innovation and International Strategies.

I am a member of many external professional networks, ensuring that my work is informed by up-to-date best practice in HE and other professional sectors.
