Achieving diversity and inclusion in the Scottish workplace involves addressing several key challenges. These include, but are not limited to, ensuring diverse representation through inclusive recruitment practices, combating unconscious biases, fostering an inclusive culture that values and supports all employees, promoting gender equality and equal pay, and enhancing accessibility for individuals with disabilities.
The Herald & GenAnalytics Diversity Awards are now in their 8th year and continue their commitment to celebrate the great progress made across all sectors of Scotland’s economy in addressing these challenges and creating equitable and inclusive work environments. We have seen companies make great strides in upholding Diversity throughout their day-to-day work and recognise we are all still working towards the common goal – no one has yet perfected this agenda. These awards create a platform to acknowledge the outstanding work taking place across Scotland.
This year we are Championing the Diversity & Inclusion Trailblazers, recognising those putting in the time and effort to make their companies a better and more inclusive place.
Entries to this year’s awards are now closed. The winners will be announced at the awards ceremony on Thursday, October 12 in Glasgow.
