NI Water is celebrating after winning two prestigious diversity awards at the Responsible Business Awards in Northern Ireland; ‘Diversity and Inclusion’ and ‘Fair Chance For All’. The ‘Diversity and Inclusion’ Award recognises NI Water for demonstrating excellence in creating and developing a diverse and inclusive workplace that offers opportunities for all, whilst the ‘Fair Chance for All’ Award recognises NI Water for understanding and removing barriers to work for disadvantaged groups and helping them become more work ready.
For more than 17 years, Business in the Community’s Responsible Business Awards have showcased transformational stories of businesses taking real action to build thriving communities. Each year, the awards celebrate businesses that demonstrate strong, inclusive leadership who innovate to tackle pressing social issues and to repair and rebuild our planet.
Sara Venning, CEO at NI Water, commented: “Being awarded not one, but two awards at the Business in the Community’s Responsible Business Awards is a brilliant accomplishment for NI Water and is further affirmation that we are on the path to becoming leaders in the area of Diversity and Inclusion.
“NI Water is committed to creating an environment where people are valued and respected for who they are and for the contributions they make in delivering what matters in Northern Ireland.”
