Black British Academics has been nominated as Best Diversity Resource in the Excellence in Diversity Awards 2015.
The Excellence in Diversity Awards is the only awards ceremony that rewards UK organisations for harnessing a truly diverse workforce, thereby recognising the significant efforts of companies nationwide that excel in their commitment to diversity and inclusion.
It also focuses on leading diversity champions, significant role models and extraordinary employees that have displayed motivation, innovation and commitment to the equality agenda. The ceremony will be held at the Midland Hotel, Manchester on May 14th 2015.
Commenting on the nominations, Dr Gabriel said: “I think the awards are a great way to encourage organisations to realise the benefits of a diverse workforce while adopting measures to deliver equal opportunities.
“It is entirely fitting that companies that prioritise equality and diversity are recognised and celebrated. At Black British Academics we have developed a new approach to race equality in higher education and are leading a new era of change.
“I am delighted that our efforts have been acknowledged and hope that the nomination will encourage more individuals and organisations to become active agents of change.”
Black British Academics was short-listed as Best Diversity Resource from over 600 organisations to one of five finalists.
