As a writer she has worked with brands all over the world, including Unilever, Mars, Deloitte, PwC, BBC, Channel 4, Danone, TATA and more. Having reached senior level in her industry, she realised she didn’t see herself as a woman of colour represented in creative leadership positions; this distinct lack of diversity and representation that made her feel invisible.

So she joined forces with Leyya Sattar to create The Other Box, and promote and increase diversity at all levels. Through workshops, events, and a fast-expanding support network of people of colour within the industry, The Other Box is creating better inclusion and diversity for all.


Roshni is also studying a Masters in Culture, Diaspora, Ethnicity at Birkbeck, which feeds into her diversity work for The Other Box. The daughter of Indian immigrants, she was born and raised in Wembley, and has always been interested in empowering marginalised voices and uncovering untold stories.

Roxanne is a huge advocate of inclusive leadership and believes that this is key to helping organisations get the best out of their people (male and female, of all ages, and from all backgrounds) and to succeed in creating a supportive, productive and diverse working environment. Roxanne believes that coaching is a critical tool in supporting individuals to ‘show up as themselves’.

Roxanne uses the Co-Active model in her coaching, which is built on the cornerstone that we are all naturally resourceful, creative and whole. She brings compassion, authenticity, warmth and a desire for change to her coaching. Roxanne has also been trained to deliver The Daring Way™ - Brené Brown's curriculum that supports participants in living brave, showing up and being seen. It explores the concepts of vulnerability and shame, gets to grips with what keeps you playing small and builds resilience skills.
