Dr Saroj Duggal was the first Asian Gujarati woman to underwrite in the insurance industry.
Through her own challenges to be successful in business, that involved breaking barriers from her cultural background and juggle a family, Dr Duggal has been on a mission to help other women facing cultural issues giving talks and advice.
She is a volunteer at Oldbury Magistrate’s Court, helps in the Victim Support area, which is now part of the Citizen’s Advice Support agency.
Through Crownsway, she advises people on insurance and has learnt four languages to help communicate the benefits to different cultural groups.
