Diversity Mark NI Independant Assessment Event

Diversity Mark NI Independant Assessment Event

Diversity Mark NI Independent Assessors give their time freely as they are passionate about being involved in making a positive impact on our economy through diversity. They bring a robust rigour to the process and are an asset to the organisation.  Here is what they had to say about being involved with us at the latest assessment event:

Judith Gillespie, former Deputy Chief Constable, PSNI. “One of the many reasons why I became involved in the Diversity Mark Assessment was to help recognise that despite continuing challenges, many organisations are making real progress in innovative ways to remove cultural and other barriers to full gender integration and equality in NI.”

Deborah Lange, Board Member Invest NI & Belfast Harbour Commission. “I am delighted to be an Independent Assessor for the WIB charter mark to help promote the benefits of equality in the workplace to both individual employees & the employers.”

Kieran Harding, Managing Director of Business in the Community. “I very much welcome the opportunity to help raise the bar in terms of Gender Diversity and recognise examples of best practice in workplaces across Northern Ireland.”

Dianne Foster, Director IT Service Delivery, Baker McKenzie. “As well as simply being ’the right thing to do’ I believe that companies that proactively manage gender diversity and have long term commitment to it can reap crucial competitive benefits.”
