Having worked as a senior chef in the hospitality industry for three years, the absence of British Muslim representation within the workplace was noticeable. Personally, I experienced difficulties with career progression due to company norms conflicting with my religious boundaries.

The number of British Muslims in higher managerial positions within the hospitality industry in the UK is quite small. It is my ambition to influence workplace policies within organisations to encourage a more inclusive culture by eliminating recruitment bias, and to improve the representation of BAME Muslims with equal career progression opportunities.

By studying this Masters, I aspire to focus my knowledge on the occupational barriers faced by BAME Muslims. I am also interested in learning more about recruitment processes, employment law, diversity and inclusion.
