Cardiff and Vale College in the top 25 organisations for equality, diversity and inclusion

The National Centre for Diversity (NCFD) is delighted to announce that Cardiff and Vale College features at number 21 in the Top 100 Index. The Top 100 Index highlights the very best of the UK across 600 organisations.

The National Centre for Diversity hosted their first annual Grand Awards evening at The ICC Birmingham to celebrate commitment and shining examples of excellent work around Equality, Diversity and Inclusion in the workplace.

Cardiff and Vale College Associate Director of Quality Michell Hiller-Forster said: “We are delighted to be listed in the NCFD Top 100 organisations and to be shortlisted for the most improving organisation award.  This is recognition of the work that all staff do to ensure that CAVC fulfils its pivotal role within the community offering opportunities for all."

The Top 100 Index was launched as part of the National Centre for Diversity’s 10 Year Anniversary celebrations. The Top 100 was determined by using the key data from the Investors in the Diversity or Leaders in Diversity diagnostics, which UK based organisations have completed. A minority of organisations also completed a separate diagnostic, if they had not completed Investors in Diversity or Leaders in Diversity. The results were entered into a computer system which generated the Top 100, using a percentage based matrix.

The NCFD Grand Awards 2016, also featured awards from a number of individual nomination categories and organisational categories.

Chief Executive of the National Centre for Diversity, Solat Chaudhry, commented: “I am incredibly proud and thankful to all those who attended our first Grand Awards evening. I want to offer huge congratulations to all of our award winners, each of our award winners and those who were shortlisted were very deserving of this level of recognition. I hope to see even more members of the National Centre for Diversity family at next year’s Awards evening!”

The evening was headline sponsored by NG Bailey and Amey; however, the NCFD Grand Awards 2016 attracted sponsors from across a variety of sectors and industries, including the Association of Teachers and Lecturers, South Lanarkshire College, Vinci Construction and the National Open College Network.
