The Sikh community in the West Midlands bids farewell to an extraordinary luminary, Mrs. Balvir Kaur Dhillon, whose passing has cast a solemn hue over the realms of business, community service, and education. As the founder and director of Golden Ethics, Mrs. Dhillon's life was an exemplar of dedication, compassion, and leadership.
Mrs. Dhillon's journey as a trailblazer in business development, leadership, and employability solutions began with the inception of Golden Ethics. Her consultancy firm was not just a business venture; it was a manifestation of her unwavering commitment to fostering innovative strategies and nurturing talent across hierarchies. Through spiritually sensitive training, coaching, and mentoring, she transcended conventional barriers, empowering individuals at every rung of the professional ladder to realise their fullest potential.
Yet, her impact extended far beyond the boardrooms and corporate landscapes. Mrs. Dhillon's heartbeat for community development, reflected in her tireless efforts to fuel grassroots initiatives focused on capacity building, organisational development, and the sustainability of communities. Her tenure as a longstanding trustee on the Nishkam Civic Association (NCA) Board was marked by unwavering dedication and a relentless pursuit of service.
Bhai Sahib Professor Mohinder Singh, Chairman of Guru Nanak Nishkam Sewak Jatha (GNNSJ), extended heartfelt condolences, acknowledging Mrs. Dhillon's selfless and pivotal role in advancing Equality, Diversity, and Inclusion (EDI) within local and regional communities. Prof. Upkar Singh Pardesi, Chairman of NCA Board reflecting on their association since the early 1990s, illuminated her influential career in further and higher education. He emphasised her instrumental role in paving avenues for women to emerge as leaders and entrepreneurs in a landscape historically skewed against them.
Mrs. Dhillon's multi-faceted engagements as a Board Member/Director, Executive Coach, Associate Consultant, and TV presenter on healthcare issues in the Sikh community in the UK reflected her expansive influence and dedication to various causes.
The trustees of Nishkam Centre and Guru Nanak Nishkam Sewak Jatha conveyed their deep condolences and expressed profound gratitude to Mrs. Dhillon's family for her unwavering commitment to selflessly serving the communities in Birmingham and the West Midlands.
Mrs. Balvir Kaur Dhillon's legacy transcends mere words. Her life, a testament to unwavering dedication and passionate pursuit of social justice and progress, has left an indelible mark on the fabric of our communities. She will forever be remembered as an advocate, and a catalyst for change.
All thoughts and prayers are with Mrs Dhillon’s family, friends and Sangat (Congregation).
