As part of our commitment to giving back to the non-profit sector, TPP are hosting our next HR round table event for HR professionals working in the Higher Education sector, designed to find solutions to common problems, share best practice and the opportunity to network.

Date: 24th July 2019

Time: 9:00 -11:30am

Venue: TPP Recruitment, 4th Floor, Sherborne House, 119-121 Cannon Street, London, EC4N 5AT

Chair: Jiten Patel 

An award-winning Equality, Diversity and Inclusion strategist, and practitioner, Jiten, has trained the whole of the workforce at the National College of School Leadership, been a D&I consultant with Ashridge MBA School, and worked with a range of universities in England and Scotland.  He was the winner of the Diversity Champion (Education Sector) award in 2015 and received the ‘Highly Commended Head of Diversity and Inclusion’ award at the 2016 and 2017 Inclusive Company Awards.  He was also a top 3 finalist at the 2011 Race for Opportunity awards for the design and development of his highly successful ‘Aspire~’ Positive Action Programme for the Open University.  Additionally, Jiten was one of the authors of the 2011 ECU (Now Advance HE) report on the barriers to BME career progress in higher Education.

Jiten has a background in Financial Services and, upon leaving his Diversity and Inclusion role at HSBC, Jiten set up his own company in 2001.  He chose to specialise in Education because he believes that, when we get it right in Education, we will then get the ripple effect across all workplaces and service provision.  Since 2001 Jiten has worked, not only in the Education Sector, but has worked with a vast range of organisations from large blue-chip companies to small local charities.

In his spare time Jiten has been involved a variety of charitable work; he is a past Chair of ‘Working Families’ and sat of the board of Trustees of a number of charities.  He is currently a Trustee at ‘MK SNAP’, a charity specialising in the needs of post 16 learners with learning disabilities.  In 2016 Jiten’s first book, ‘Demystifying Diversity’, was published and is currently going into its second edition.  He is now working on his second book, ‘The Hide and Seek and Bias and Prejudice’ which seeks to unpack Unconscious Bias, exploring a principle he has coined as Inherent Bias, and its impact on individuals, groups, and workplaces.

Topics for discussion:

  • Equality and Diversity within the Higher Education sector.
  • Candidate control in a changing and challenging Higher Education market
