We were delighted and proud to have presented five very progressive organisations with the Bronze Diversity Charter Mark at our Awards Lunch this month hosted by Ulster Bank.
The Diversity Mark independent assessors were particularly impressed with the challenges that these organisations have set themselves, with some very creative and innovative initiatives to build an inclusive and positive culture to retain and attract top talent needed to compete in the coming years.
The following organisations were awarded at the event and can use the Mark of Progress as a public declaration to their commitment to Diversity & Inclusion:
Northern Ireland Electricity Networks
IQ & Co
Diversity Mark NI independent assessor Judith Gillespie, former Deputy Chief Constable at the PSNI spoke passionately regarding her role and the importance of embracing the Charter Mark.
“Organisations can’t afford not to do this because it is vital that we are all committing to being in a better position and adding value to not only to business, but also society“Judith Gillespie, Former Deputy Chief Constable, PSNI
Dr Bryan Keating, Diversity Mark NI vice-chair also spoke at the event highlighting his personal reasons for being involved and his passion for championing Diversity due to the vast business benefits to companies of all sizes in attaining the Charter Mark.
