Sarah Carroll has been shortlisted for the HERoes Women Role Model list 2019 for the third consecutive year.

Having been successfully ranked for the last two years on the HERoes 100 Female Executives List, Sarah has once again been recognised for her efforts to promote diversity within the sector.

Sarah's nomination is rooted in her desire for supporting women throughout her career. Having co-founded Balance, MUFG's gender diversity network, Sarah currently performs an advisory role on the committee alongside her everyday role wherein she supports the new co-chairs in steering the network forward.

Sarah's leadership has seen the Balance network go from strength to strength, with an engaged, diverse membership who regularly interact with its campaigns and initiatives, alongside the launch of several network chapters across MUFG's EMEA region. Sarah has also broadened the network's reach to include employees from a variety of departments within the organisation, as well as providing junior colleagues an opportunity to be involved in the network's leadership.

Having made a concentrated effort to mentor other women working in financial services, as well as raising awareness of diversity issues in her previous roles at JP Morgan and Bank of America Merrill Lynch, Sarah has been able to position herself as a trusted contact with others' best interests at heart, and utilise her extensive network to assist women seeking new roles within the sector.

Speaking of her acknowledgement, Sarah Carroll said:

"It is an honour to once again be included in theHERoes Women Role Model lists 2019. I am truly passionate about improving inclusion for women at MUFG, bringing equality to the forefront of the organisation, and improving gender balance statistics at senior levels.

"As a senior business leader I believe I have a duty to the next generations to share my experiences; good and bad, in order to help others learn how to deal with diverse situations and use them to grow. I hope I can continue to work towards this for all of my colleagues in the future."
