Sayli Chitre, from our financial services team in London, has been named in the FT and HERoes Top 50 Female Future Leaders.
The FT and HERoes Champions of Women in Business are a celebration of the strides being made in gender diversity around the world. They are published annually by the Financial Times, showcasing female business leaders and their male allies.
The role models we’re recognizing aren’t just those who have achieved success themselves – they’re those who are committed to lifting others with them as they climb, and ultimately fuelling the female talent pipeline.Suki Sandhu, Founder of INvolve and HERoes
Sayli specializes in public policy, finance, and risk. She has served as co-lead for one of our diversity networks, EMPOWERED, where she helped create a more inclusive workplace.
In initial meetings, clients sometimes assume that I am the most junior person in the room – even when I am the team manager. Unconscious gender and ethnicity biases come into play. I don’t allow these biases to stand – instead I challenge them by demonstrating my credibility as a trusted advisor who is highly qualified to advise senior clients. Being taken seriously is a constant battle faced by many women, my advice is to never give up and seek support from your team when you need to be empowered.Sayli Chitre
