Last year, Mitra moved to the City from Ford Motor Company to take up a newly-established Diversity and Inclusion position at DLA Piper, one of the world’s largest corporate law firms. Mitra’s background is in generalist HR, having undertaken a variety of roles in employee relations, learning and development and as a business partner. Her focus and specialism in Diversity and Inclusion stems from her passion for ensuring that everyone feels valued and included and has an opportunity to contribute.

She has a clear strategic vision of improved diversity within the legal sector and in society more broadly and has developed and implemented a number of initiatives focussed on developing the talent pipeline. Outside of work, Mitra is a school governor at a girls’ secondary school and is committed to inspiring future generations of women to achieve their full potential. She is a huge Prince fan and has travelled across the UK and abroad to see him in concert.
