Yes, I am a senior representative of the BT Muslim Network (BTMN) where I lead my own Recruitment & Engagement Strategy function within Network. My work is focused around helping expand the BTMN globally across BT through building regional networks for our Muslim colleagues. I’ve currently onboarded 10 senior representatives into the BTMN Leadership team, accompanied with an additional 22 ‘Site champions’ across the globe (UK, Holland, Indonesia, India to mention a few) which support the aim of my global expansion project.
On the engagement front, I create and explore wider Diversity & inclusion initiatives both inside and outside the business to harness the talent of Muslim colleagues in the corporate world. In addition, also shedding light on some of the barriers to progress Muslims face in modern society using government backed research reports. Some examples involve me hosting the ‘Apprenticeship Discovery Series with the BTMN’, Ramadan knowledge calls, Islamophobia awareness month campaigns and many more. These initiatives led to greater engagement levels within our network, feeding into BT's Diversity and Inclusion agenda in terms of ‘educating and empowering our people’.
