Zac Shander-Kelsey

Management Graduate, University of Bath

Zac is a Management graduate from the University of Bath. His passion for D&I stems from his ethnic background, being Irish, Fijian and English as well as dyslexic. As part of his degree, he completed a placement year at BNY Mellon, where he led several D&I initiatives across the employee resource groups for Women, Disabilities, BAME and LGBTQ+. This highlighted to him that achieving diversity is the first step, but fostering an inclusive work environment is the bigger challenge. Therefore, Zac is committed to supporting any D&I initiatives, including his startup CONNEX which aims to connect students with industry events, to improve their employability, reduce network poverty and enhance widening participation.
