The winner of the Governance Award was ActionAid UK

Diversity Award

The Diversity Award recognises organisations in the sector that nurture diverse and inclusive workforces.

Despite the sector’s crucial work in tackling inequalities overseas, the UK charity workforce still faces challenges in unequal pay and diversity. We want to celebrate organisations that are actively seeking to redress these imbalances by employing and developing a diverse, inclusive workforce.

This year's submissions

We wanted to hear from organisations that are putting strategies and initiatives in place that champion diversity and equality, and show true excellence in inclusive employment within their organisations. The winner will be announced on 18 March 2019.

Christian Aid - CASENET


Oxfam GB - Trainee scheme
