Anthony Nolan has appointed Arti Agrawal as its new Director of Inclusion, Diversity and Involvement.
Arti joins Anthony Nolan from her dual roles at the University of Technology Sydney, Director of the Women in Engineering and IT (WIEIT) and Associate Professor at the Faculty of Engineering and IT.
Chief Executive of Anthony Nolan, Henny Braund comments: “We are delighted to welcome Arti. This is an extremely important role and I’m very eager to see what Arti’s expertise can bring to further this vital work within the organisation. The work we do at Anthony Nolan is fundamentally about people.
“In our role as both a health charity and an employer, we know there is more that we need to do to address these issues through our work. With our staff and volunteers, our ambition is to create an inclusive environment, where different perspectives are valued and celebrated, and everyone can bring their whole self to Anthony Nolan.”
Arti Agrawal comments: “I am very excited to join Anthony Nolan and contribute to the common cause of saving lives. That is central to my work at Anthony Nolan through Inclusion and Diversity.
“Increasing the diversity of donors has a direct impact on saving lives, especially those from Asian and Black or minority ethnic background. Inclusion is key in making our services accessible to our patients and their families, and ensuring ethnicity, disability, religion or sexual orientation is not a barrier to patients receiving the care they deserve or our staff achieving their career aspirations.”
