Equality, Diversity and Inclusion Champion - GE Awards 2021
This award is to recognise industry-leading performance by a geotechnical organisation Jan 2020 to July 2021 in making specific efforts to champion and develop a diverse and inclusive culture that permeates the workforce.
The entry should demonstrate how the business is championing change and fostering a more diverse and inclusive workplace for all employees. It should also describe how this is helping to attract and retain talent and include internal company initiatives to appeal to different people.
This can be illustrated at both head office and project level, and can be focused on the role an individual is playing in driving changing.
We recognise that the Covid-19 pandemic might have had an adverse effect on some companies, initiatives and projects. We still strongly encourage companies and teams to enter this year’s GE Awards, as their pandemic response strategy will also be considered in the judging.
- Positive leadership that filters down to all levels and efforts to promote diversity and inclusion in the wider industry
- Staff engagement, training and a company culture to foster change
- Creating more open employment opportunities and avoiding exclusion through recruitment processes
- Outcomes from specific initiatives to promote diversity and inclusion
