2019 National Diversity Awards @ Liverpool's Anglican Cathedral | St James Mt | England | United Kingdom
The National Diversity Awards – a prestigious black tie event, which celebrates the excellent achievements of grass- root communities that tackle the issues in today’s society, giving them recognition for their dedication and hard work. Charities, role models and community heroes will be honoured at the ceremony showcasing their outstanding devotion to enhancing equality, diversity and inclusion; thus embracing the excellence of all our citizens irrespective of race, faith, religion, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, age, disability and culture. 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, with the aim to empower and inspire the wide breadth of diverse communities across the UK. 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. These awards are for people who inspire other individuals through their work, through their commitment to helping others, through their infectious personalities and through adversity.

What is a BAME ally you may ask?

Featuring an array of influential keynote speakers who are sure to enthuse our network, the morning will cover vital themes, break down barriers and offer a ‘BAME Experience’ session, covering personal stories and experiences in the workplace.
