Neil Sainani

Manager, Learning, Canadian Centre for Diversity and Inclusion

Neil Sainani is currently the Manager, Learning, at CCDI and is excited about his role as learning and development, and diversity and inclusion are his biggest passions. Neil has always been passionate about diversity and inclusion and has been advocating for his friends and community for as long as he can remember.

Over the last 17 years, Neil has worked in a wide variety of roles within the financial industry including sales, talent acquisition, learning and development, and team leadership. The reason Neil has joined CCDI is due to the fact that the cross-sectionality of his role includes D&I and learning and development.
