Kevin Withane

Group Ethics and Compliance Director and Senior Legal Director - International, TI Fluid Systems plc

I am a purpose-led senior lawyer and ethics and compliance executive. I have gained experience working across non-profits, quasi-governmental organizations, at a regulator, in law firms, SMEs and at a global public listed company. I have been fortunate to have lived and worked in the UK, China, Hong Kong, Russia and the United States as well as traveling extensively across Europe and Asia where I gained deep insights into the shift towards human leadership and the demand for business to align their purpose with making the world a better place – for everyone. Human leadership and purpose are intersecting at a moment in time when the world needs it most. I am passionate about helping build positive work cultures with strong climates of integrity, and supporting companies become truly diverse and inclusive.

Purpose of group

The purpose of this community is to be a safe place to learn and share knowledge, and importantly failures as well between those working on or otherwise supporting diversity, equity, and inclusion efforts. Up until early 2020 I had just been dabbling with the diversity, equity and inclusion field. I would take the work on at my company, as a passion project but without a clear purpose. In early 2020 I decided to take the plunge and study about the field. Then the senseless murder of George Floyd happened, and the alarms bells in my head wouldn’t go off. This single event stopped me in my nice comfortable track and made me reflect. I exposed the discrimination I had suffered and buried all my life (notwithstanding that I think I have done ok in life). I vowed to really use my platform to use my skills in the diversity, equity and inclusion field, to help others make the world a better place. I have no shame in saying this. I get up everyday, as I now have three children, who no fault of their own, will experience some form of discrimination. I have to do all I can to do to help businesses and all organisations to embrace equity and inclusion so as to unleash the power of diversity. This will in turn help improve society so that the world will be that little bit better for my children, and yours. Who is the community for? - those working to build inclusive organisational cultures that drive engagement and innovation - those wanting to understand what they can do in terms of supporting such inclusive culture building efforts - Board leaders who need to ensure they are well versed in order to steer through the challenges of building and sustaining an inclusive organisation - and anyone else who just wants to learn.
