The GED Awards

Awarded for transparency, using research, making an impact

The annual GED Awards are awarded for transparency, using research, making an impact. With a special Lord Noon Award recognising outstanding individual achievement in advancing equality and diversity.

By 2017, it is estimated that 8000 companies will be affected by David Cameron’s focus on transparency, with public sector organisations coming under the microscope shortly afterwards.

Every company and organisation will have to make transparent their social impact on equality and diversity.

The GED 2016 Awards are a key learning and sharing platform for professionals and academics who are already involved in new approaches to Global Equality and Diversity understanding and are leading the way to embrace transparency and demonstrate impact.

Invitations are now open for submissions illuminating the most innovative research, publishing and impact approaches within organisations.
