Passionate employees who want to make change in their organisations can face multiple barriers, sometimes these can be people.

This award celebrates an inspirational executive leader who has used their personal influence to pave the way for creating an inclusive culture maybe through a personal story or opened up about something the workforce cannot see, thereby enabling others to do the same.
