Simran Mohnani

I currently work as a Systems Engineering Analyst on Deloitte’s Technology Consulting graduate scheme, delivering digital transformations across multinational financial & public sector clients.

Working as an automation engineer enables me to transform theoretical concepts into working technology apps, speeding up manual processes for the masses and driving a real social impact!

During my industrial placement at University, I worked as a Continuous Improvement Process Engineer at Mondelez International’s ‘Cadbury’ factory. My role involved implementing a cost-optimisation inventory management solution with SAP and heading up a data program to automate chocolate cooling as we transition to Industry 4.0. It was here that I felt inspired to work towards increasing women’s awareness and access to STEM opportunities as the only girl in my factory department.

Within Deloitte, I currently lead Codename MAXINE, a 90+ strong external-facing community designed at expanding the pipeline of female and other under-represented talent in the Technology Integrations space. In the wake of the Black Lives Movement revival, along with four analysts, I have launched a Diversity & Inclusion (D&I) proposal around ‘Speaking Up’ in a bid to combat social injustice. This has been integrated into Deloitte’s Consulting Black Action Plan, with us being the most junior team to lead such an initiative.

My efforts in the D&I space have been recognised as a recipient of one of Deloitte’s Limelight Awards, and in being elected as the D&I Representative for Deloitte’s branch of the Young Management Consultancies Association. I have also been recognised as one of the Salters’ Institute’s top five UK Chemical Engineers 2019 for my work in championing women in STEM as a female role model. My aim is to expand the typical image of our future technologists and to empower a united workforce that reflects the diversity of our world’s people – one where all voices have an equal seat at the table.
