AWP shortlisted for an excellence award

EiDA logoAs Dr Seuss once said "Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don't matter and those who matter don't mind."

We agree, and in recognition of our ongoing commitment to equality and diversity we have reached the finals of a national excellence award.

The Excellence in Diversity Award (EiDA) acknowledges all types of organisations and individual practitioners for championing diversity and promoting inclusion in the workplace. Our Trust has been shortlisted for the 'Diverse Company Award' in the Public Sector category.

"This nomination is great news" said AWP's Equality & Diversity Advisor. "I have been out and about meeting teams and colleagues, and we have a diverse workforce, with people from all sorts of backgrounds bringing their experiences, different skills and talents to their work."

The nomination means that AWP is now featured in EiDA's Top 50 Inclusive UK Employers. The awards ceremony takes place in Leeds on the 12th May. We'll let you know how we get on.

Our Trust aims to treat people as individuals, respecting and valuing their diversity. Equality and diversity is at the core of our care and is crucial in delivering quality services.
