Here’s what some of our 2019 finalists had to say:
It was well organised, well run and great to see diversity in the room and on stage
It was a brilliant event jam packed with inspirational finalists. It was a privilege to be part of the event and we were honoured to win in our category.
Here’s what one of sponsors had to say:
Thank you, it was an excellent evening enjoyed by all. We are really proud to continue to be a part of the Diversity Conference & Awards and working together in promoting the diversity message in Scotland. It’s great to see how much the interest and involvement has grown over the last few years and of course we were delighted to have our own progress recognised.
