FDM Group, University of Glasgow, Scottish Water, Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors, Clydesdale Community Initiatives – what does your organisation have in common with these employers?
At first glance you might not think there are no similarities or nothing in common. But if your organisation has made strides in efforts to achieve a diverse and inclusive workforce then you have more in common than you think.
The third Diversity Awards taking place in October this year is the opportunity for your organisation to join our growing network of Scotland’s Diversity Champions.
In just over two years we have recognised the achievement of over 80 businesses, social enterprises, public sector organisations, and individuals who have demonstrated a commitment to promoting diversity and inclusion for the benefit of all.
Some of these organisations were at the early stages on their diversity journey but could demonstrate impact and success. Some have been working on this agenda for a number of years – mainstreaming this into normal day-day business.
There are a whole range of categories available for entry: large employers, medium employers, small employers, third sector, education, communities, youth employment, public sector – a variety of categories with diversity and inclusion at their heart.
Once again, we are also hugely grateful to our partners for supporting this event: BAE Systems, City Building LLP, City of Glasgow College, CIPD, Diageo, Taylor Wimpey, MacRoberts, Royal Mail, ScottishPower, Standard Life Aberdeen, Wheatley Group, and YSC – many of whom have been on this journey with The Herald and GenAnalytics from the beginning and who are absolutely committed to diversity within their own organisations and across our economy as a whole.
If you or your organisation is working to ensure that people have the opportunities to maximise their potential in the workplace and are committed to driving change then we want to hear from you. Even if you have entered in previous years please consider an entry once again.
It’s always an exciting moment when we start reading all the entries that come in from across Scotland. Don’t miss out on the opportunity to showcase your organisations’ efforts and achievements. But more importantly don’t miss out on the opportunity to join Scotland’s Diversity Champions. The momentum is behind us on this and definite progress being made. Now is the time to ensure we capitalise on this and continue our efforts to achieve a truly diverse and inclusive economy.
