National Diversity Awards 2014

Nominations Open in February for the UK’s Largest Diversity Awards!

The-Awards-CategoriesThe National Diversity Awards in association with Microsoft is a celebration of the outstanding achievements of positive role models and community organisations across the UK.

A collection of some of the nation’s most inspirational and selfless people gather each year to recognise the country’s rich tapestry, honouring those from grass root communities who have contributed to creating a more diverse and inclusive society.

If your organisation is a strong representative of true diversity or you would wish to nominate then please do not hesitate to get involved with this initiative.

The National Diversity Awards is a prestigious black tie event sponsored by companies that have developed an open and inclusive culture and are striving to build a more diverse and stable workforce.

The concept for The National Diversity Awards arose when The Diversity Group identified an urgent need for more positive role models to be actively promoted, empowering and inspiring the wide breadth of communities across the UK.

Our aims and what we inspire to accomplish by holding these ceremonies

  • The promotion of Equality and Diversity
  • To create role models from all sections of society
  • The elimination of discrimination on the grounds of race, gender, gender identity, disability, sexual orientation, religion or age
  • Celebrate the achievements of people, community/charity organisations and companies that strive for a more inclusive society.
  • Highlight how diverse communities have contributed to the economy of The United Kingdom

The National Diversity Awards have gained support from the likes of Stephen Fry, Brian Dowling and several paralympians such as Jody Cundy, Sarah Storey and Ade Adepitan.

If ever there was a time to celebrate and elevate the truly staggering diversity of talent the UK has to offer, it is now – opportunities are thin and deprived communities need motivation and inspiration.  Nominations will open Monday 3rd February for you to put forward your local heroes and organisations.

Award categories include: Positive Role Model, Community Organisation, Entrepreneur of Excellence, Diversity Company & Lifetime Achiever. Various awards are split into age, disability, gender, LGBT, race, faith & Religion.
