The Calico Group has been shortlisted for the Diverse Company Award at the National Diversity Awards 2015.
This achievement is a testament to the group and employees, highlighting their hard work and dedication to the equality agenda, after fighting off over 20,000 other nominations to be shortlisted.
Linda Watkin, Head of Business Improvement at The Calico Group said:
“Ensuring that we provide fair and equitable services that are accessible to all is a high priority. We are serious about fulfilling the aims of our equality, diversity and inclusion agenda and this is something all parts of the business are working to achieve.
“Being recognised and shortlisted for this award is a testament to the efforts of all staff within the group, and we look forward to the winner being announced”.
Designed to highlight the country’s most inspirational and selfless people, the NDA’s are supported by the likes of Brian Blessed, Adam Hills and Ade Adepitan.
The Calico Group will be fighting off competition from ten organisations including the British Transport Police, Royal Navy, and Circle Housing, all vying for the prestigious award on the night.
The winner will be announced on the 18th September 2015 at the Anglican Cathedral in Liverpool, where Charities and Role Models from across the UK will gather to celebrate the outstanding achievements of those who have demonstrated their devotion to enhancing equality, diversity and inclusion in today’s society.
