Throughout the year, there are some individuals who work tirelessly to remove barriers and put diversity at the very heart of everything they do.
This year, on May 12th, The Excellence in Diversity Awards will once again celebrate those who go above and beyond the call of duty to improve the lives of others in their communities and workplaces around them.
Touchstone has been shortlisted in the Diverse Company (Charity) section along with diversity champions, inclusive employers and pioneering campaigns from all aspects of diversity.
An overwhelming number of nominations were received paying tribute to inspirational individuals and diverse companies nationwide, that have showcased their incredible commitment to the equality agenda. A panel of judges gathered to finalise the widely anticipated shortlist.
The shortlisted candidates will gather in Leeds at The Queens Hotel on 12th May – reuniting a spectacular array of equality leaders.
The awards ceremony will applaud the extraordinary contributions of those that have gone above and beyond their corporate social responsibility, tackling issues internally and externally to influence change in the field of equality and diversity.
