Local diversity and inclusion champion banks honorary award


A local diversity and inclusion champion has banked success after being awarded an honorary degree by the University of Wolverhampton. 

Manjit Kaur Kang, a real estate finance manager and diversity ambassador at NatWest, has played a significant role in building NatWest’s profile in the West Midlands and has been recognised for her work in focusing on women in business and strengthening links with the Asian business community.  

Outside work she’s a familiar and admired figure in the Sikh and wider communities.  

She represents the bank as a non-executive director of ART Business Loans, which supports West Midlands businesses.  

Manjit works tirelessly as a champion of diversity and inclusion, and she also co-chairs the NatWest Sikh Network. 

The University of Wolverhampton presented an Honorary Fellowship to Manjit at a graduation ceremony on Thursday 16 September 2021.  

Manjit said: “I am honoured and delighted to be awarded with an Honorary Fellowship for my work and passion to see a more equal and inclusive society. It’s a privilege to serve our diverse communities and to be recognised for my efforts and contributions in championing gender, ethnic and religious diversity with this prestigious accolade is so heartening. Thank you, University of Wolverhampton!” 

The University of Wolverhampton graduation ceremonies are taking place at the Grand Theatre in Wolverhampton from Thursday 9 September – Friday 17 September 2021.   

The 17 ceremonies will see over 3,000 students who completed their studies in 2020 collect their awards.   

It is the first time the University has held a graduation ceremony since December 2019 due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
