North East Equality Awards
Itís the Tenth Anniversary!
I am proud to announce that the 2013 North East Equality Awards is now open for applications.
It is ten years since the first awards celebration which was held at the National Glass Centre in Sunderland. Since then the regional equality awards have grown considerably with the evening celebration now recognised as a prestigious date in the North East calendar.
The awards recognise and celebrate good equality practice so it can be shared and replicated across the region and nationally. The evidence shows that good equality practice is good for individuals, business and the region as a whole.
The North East has taken the brunt of the recent economic downturn yet many organisations are still ensuring that equality and diversity is well and truly embedded in the day to day working practices.
It is important that we recognise and celebrate the achievements of the companies and individuals who are working to make a difference to the people and prosperity of this region. We are committed to ensuring that this, the tenth year sees the biggest celebration ever, this region deserves it!
We look forward to receiving your application and to meeting the finalists and winners at this yearís dinner which is scheduled to take place at the Newcastle-Gosforth Marriott Hotel on 4th October.
