Dr. Kamel Hothi OBE

Is ranked in the top 100 most influential black, Asian and minority ethnic leaders in the UK and was awarded an OBE in 2017 for services to promoting diversity in banking. From cashier to Director, over 4 decades Kamel has experienced first-hand the struggles of smashing glass ceilings, discrimination, and gender imbalance resulting in forming the Ethnic Minority and Women’s network. This intrapreneur drive pushed her on to develop the Asian Strategy, cultural training initiatives, new communication campaigns and products for Lloyds Banking Group. Her skill in stakeholder management and collaboration has seen huge successes such as the development of civil partnerships across the private and public sector by encouraging innovation of programmes and supporting culture change and new operating models following mergers, acquisitions and turnarounds. Kamel is an international motivational speaker invited to inspire colleagues on topics like allyship, gender, race equality and leadership. Leaving audiences emotionally moved and thoughtful, including helping senior leaders transition to becoming more inclusive and empathetic. Post retirement Kamel now supports several boards as an Advisor, Trustee including Lloyds of London ESG Committee for the Insurance Industry, The Queen’s Commonwealth Trust across 54 countries on social change for youth, Ambassador for Alzheimer’s Soc and a NED TLC Lions where she has supported over 300 companies. All this she has balanced as a mother, carer and wife living within a complex traditional Indian culture full of honour and traditions.
