HoW College breaks the top 100!
Celebrations are underway at Heart of Worcestershire College (HoW College) as it’s featured in National Centre for Diversity (NCFD) Top 100 Index 2018.
Announced at the NCFD’s Grand Awards event in London, the Top 100 Index highlighted HoW College as one of the best organisations in the UK.
The Top 100 Index is dictated by the results of the diagnostic surveys completed by those who have embarked on an accreditation journey with the National Centre for Diversity.
HoW College achieved Investors in Diversity Standard at Stage 2 in January 2016 and since then have continued to take a structured and planned approach to embedding EDI at the heart of everything it does.
Talking about the College’s achievements, Assistant Principal Higher Education and Standards, Peter Robinson said:
“We are delighted with this achievement which is a recognition of the work we do every year but one that we have focused on since merger. The principles behind the Investors in Diversity award is creating equality of opportunity, drawing upon the diverse talents and skills of our staff and promoting fairness and a respect for all to our students and partners, principles that accord with our own values. This is a significant milestone in our journey but we will continue to review and improve our services and our role in and for our communities.”
The NCFD’s aims to advance fairness for all in the workplace by helping organisations to embed best Equality, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI) practices. Their goal is to positively influence beliefs, attitudes, behaviour and conduct towards issues surrounding EDI.
