West Midlands Mayor Praises Colleges for Opportunities Offered to Students
Halesowen College announces that it has been placed number 6 in the National Centre for Diversity Top 100 Most Inclusive Workplaces Index for 2023.
The prestigious accolade is an acknowledgement of the college’s commitment to being an inclusive and welcoming environment for all staff and students.
The index is compiled annually by the National Centre for Diversity and provides a comprehensive benchmark of the nation’s top employers in terms of their diversity and inclusion policies and is compiled using a range of criteria, including representation of different genders, ethnicities, sexual orientations, disabilities, and religious beliefs.
College Principal and Chief Executive, Jacquie Carman said: “We are delighted to be recognised for our commitment to diversity and inclusion at Halesowen College. The college has a fantastic environment where everyone feels welcome and valued, and this ranking is a great endorsement of our efforts.”
Solat Chaudhry, Chief Executive at the National Centre for Diversity said:
“I send my warmest congratulations to Halesowen College on successfully reaching number 6 in the Top 100 Most Inclusive Workplaces Index 2023. It’s been a challenging year for the sector, but it has not dented the excellent work that organisations and individuals do in promoting FREDIE best practice.
“I am particularly proud that we celebrate excellent work across all sectors as these organisations are the future of the workplace in the UK. We celebrate the exceptional work of people and organisations who have EDI running through their DNA. Let’s rejoice at this and build a better society.”
