Ahmina Akhtar

Inclusion Advisory Group member

Ahmina is passionate about equality, diversity and inclusion both personally and professionally. She grew up in a racially segregated town and felt the impact of racism from an early age. She therefore volunteered at a local youth club as a teenager and served as a regional youth councillor to promote equality, diversity, and inclusion. It was these early experiences, and her desire for greater social justice, which ultimately led to her becoming a social worker.

Promoting equality, diversity and inclusion has been central in all her roles. She is currently the Head of Equality, Diversity, and Inclusion at Social Work England, the specialist regulator for social workers in England and she also supports several charities both strategically and operationally.
