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 8th annual Herald & GenAnalytics Diversity Awards continued 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 championed the Diversity & Inclusion Trailblazers, recognising those putting in the time and effort to make their companies a better and more inclusive place.
The event is now past and winners were announced at the awards ceremony on Thursday, October 12 in Glasgow.
