We are delighted and honoured to have been nominated in the 'Social Mobility Initiative of the Year' category for the inaugural British Diversity Awards.

The awards promote the values of equality, diversity and inclusion by rewarding those individuals, organisations and unsung heroes who help to make the world and the workplace a better place for others. They're sponsored by Burberry and supported by leading businesses including Boots, GSK and Veolia.

The ceremony will take place at London's Grand Connaught Rooms on March 10th, where the host will be TV Presenter and diversity champion June Sarpong OBE.

Awards founder Linda Riley, said: "These awards will shine a light on the individuals, organisations, charities and unsung heroes who help to make the world and workplaces a better place for others across all strands of diversity.

"We believe that by continuing to celebrate Equality, Diversity and Inclusion we can help make the UK a better place to live and work for everyone."

Erica Bourne, Chief People Officer, Burberry said: "Valuing different perspectives and experiences enables us to enhance our creativity and foster a sense of belonging while opening new spaces for our colleagues, customers and communities. We are delighted to be sponsoring the inaugural British Diversity Awards and supporting the chosen Charity of the Year, celebrating inspirational achievements and sharing stories that will inspire many others to be active changemakers and allies."
