In this year’s Debrett’s 500, Sara Khan was recognised in the category War and Peace as one of the most influential people in the UK. Only 2 out of the 20 nominees in this category are women – and both Muslim.
For almost 250 years Debrett’s has been recognising people of influence and achievement in British society. It is a positive endorsement and recognition of Britain’s 500 most influential people, nominating outstanding achievements in 24 different categories, which are a reflection of the concerns of British society nowadays.
This nomination is yet another recognition of the importance of Inspire’s efforts to work towards a more peaceful, inclusive society.
“I am humbled to be recognised in Debrett’s 500; a list of the 500 most influential people living and working in the UK today, but I’m particularly honoured to be featured in the War and Peace category as someone who is working towards peace and stability in the United Kingdom. The threat of extremism is real and impacts on us all. I hope to continue working for a peaceful and just society for all.”
