I am delighted to launch this year’s Awards, which will be celebrated at The Law Society on 10th July 2018.

The Employers Network for Equality & Inclusion (enei) Awards provide a fantastic opportunity for employers to showcase and share innovative ways in which they have taken a lead in challenging discrimination and are working inclusively to tap into their talented workforce.

The Awards are our opportunity to recognise the commitment of organisations to achieving diverse and inclusive workplaces and celebrate the teams and individuals who are really making a difference.

enei Awards 2017 Trophies

This year there are 15 individual category awards that recognise the range of excellence we hear about on a daily basis, covering employers, teams and individuals. On the night we will also be naming Overall Winners from the private and public sectors and the Small Employer (less than 1,000 employees) of the Year. Whilst I know that some of you are modest about your achievements, please remember that other employers can learn from your work and it is important to shout about the great things you are doing, even in a challenging climate.

Award entries should be submitted to https://www.enei.org.uk/events/awards-submission/  by 6 April 2018. Our judging panel will receive shortlisted entries and agree the winners. Shortlisted applicants will be notified by the end of May 2018. Winners receive a trophy and framed certificate, the opportunity to post their story on enei's website, celebrate achievements with other leading employers and be a part of enei's exclusive Awards Brochure.

As always, the enei Awards are free to enter and free to attend and you can enter up to 3 Awards categories! Our purpose is simply to celebrate and share best practice.

If you have any questions about the awards or would like to find out more about sponsorship opportunities, please contact either myself or Magali Merindol on +44 20 7922 7834 or magali.merindol@enei.org.uk .

I look forward to reading your applications and celebrating with you on the 10th July.

 

Best wishes and good luck!
