The countdown is on for entries to the Scottish Business Diversity Awards 2014. Now in its seventh year, the awards – run by the Scottish Union of Supported Employment (SUSE) – recognise those people, organisations and businesses who excel in promoting the employment of people with disabilities and long term conditions.
There are three categories in the 2014 awards:
The Achiever of the Year Award – recognising the efforts and achievements made by people with disabilities and long-term conditions to follow their employment goals.
The Innovation Award – recognising a project or programme that takes a fresh approach at employability and disability in the workplace.
If you want to nominate an individual or organisation for any of the awards, all you need to do is complete a short nomination form by 10 am on 6th October 2014. Simply visit the Scottish Business Diversity Awards website for more information.
This year the awards will be held on 20 November at the annual SUSE conference at the Apex International Hotel, Edinburgh.
SUSE received almost £700,000 from the Big Lottery Fund to help remove barriers to employment faced by disabled people. The awards are just a small part of the work they are doing to change attitudes within the work place.
