Maya Welford

After graduating from King’s College London in 2018 with a First Class BSc Psychology degree, where she received the Desmond Tutu Award for her commitment towards serving society, Maya joined Barclays on their Human Resources Graduate programme.

Maya has made a positive impact both through her day role at Barclays as well as through extra-curricular endeavours. Within her first 6 months at Barclays, Maya received a Barclays Values Recognition Award in recognition of her commitment to the Barclays values. Beyond her day role and as part of her engagement with Win, Barclays’ Gender Network, Maya founded and launched the Charity Mentoring Programme, which connects Win members with staff at charities aligned to driving gender equality. In addition, Maya is committed to the cause of social mobility and mentors young people from less privileged backgrounds to raise their aspirations. Alongside employment and given her hunger for continuous self-development, Maya is currently pursuing a Master’s degree in Corporate Responsibility & Sustainability at Birkbeck, University of London.
