Congratulations to all our shortlisted organisations and individuals.

“As businesses and organisations increasingly operate in the world of big data and transparency, this year’s entries demonstrate tremendous effort and insight into the new generation of equality, diversity and inclusion activity.
GED Awards are a celebration of effort and achievement but also represent the next generation of benchmarks for research that informs bold change, using transparency in measuring the impact and revising action plans.”
