City Hindus Network

Not-for-profit organisation promoting networking, personal development and charity amongst Hindu professionals in London.

The CHN has been consulted on several cultural, religious and diversity-related issues in the media since its inception. As a large membership body of Hindu professionals, this puts the CHN in the unique position of having access to a large body of Hindus that we have utilised for thought leadership and research to benefit the Hindu community, and wider British society, at large.

In particular:

  • Sewa Day adds £400,000 value to Britain: Two economists from the CHN produced an independent report that showed Sewa Day, which encourages social action, good deeds and public service, in 2011, returned £4.40 of economic and social benefit for every £1 expended on it resulting in a £400,000 monetised gross benefit of to the British economy.
  • Breakthrough CHN research into the Glass Ceiling:  We have launched a major research project which aims to gather substantive data about the relevance and impact of ethnicity in one’s career progression and establish whether a Glass Ceiling is still prevalent. This is supported by a number of MPs, Lords, corporates and community organisations. We aim to launch its finding at the House of Commons in May 2013.
