Shalini Mahtani calls herself “a brown woman” who was consistently excluded from roles, projects and even activities at the international banks and consultancies at which she worked. She was born and raised in an Indian family in Hong Kong.
Mahtani became Founder and Board Director of Community Business out of frustration with the abysmal and uneven treatment of diverse professionals at multinationals. Community Business works at the board level of multinational corporations to advise them on the business case for diversity. She is based in Hong Kong.
