The Scottish Diversity Awards 2016 #scotdiversity16
The judging panel for Scotland’s first ever National Diversity Awards met on Wednesday this week. With over 80 entries from a range of third sector, public organisations and large and small businesses, the level and quality of submissions was outstanding. Feedback from the independent judges was that every entry provided an excellent example of the great work that is going on across Scotland to achieve diversity and equality in the workplace and in our communities.
This is an occasion when I really do wish everyone could be a winner – when we see the commitment and focus of these individuals and organisations and when we consider the impact they are having on moving the diversity dial in Scotland. It’s good to know that so many people have a vision of equality at the heart of their organisation or business across Scotland.
On the 13th October, 2016 GenAnalytics and The Herald will announce the winners. And we will rightly applaud their achievements. If you also want to hear and find out more, join us on the 13th October to cheer the winners and all those doing such great work to promote equality and diversity. They deserve your support.
