MI5, MI6 and GCHQ

Sponsor of the Diverse Company Award

MI5, MI6 & GCHQ are delighted to be Gold Sponsors of the National Diversity Awards once again and convey our ongoing commitment to equality, diversity and inclusion through our sponsorship of the Diverse Company Award. As the UK’s largest awards of their kind, we view this as an important way of recognising and celebrating the vital work being carried out across the country to tackle issues of inequality and discrimination to deliver opportunity for all. After a challenging year for many, we look forward to honouring the success of role models, businesses and organisations who are leading the way to true diversity and inclusion in our society.


Sponsor of the Community Organisation Award: Disability

We are tirelessly driven to measure data equitably and fairly, and that commitment to equality is built into our culture. To embrace the talents and ideas of all backgrounds and perspectives is core to who we are.

Direct Line Group

Sponsor of the Positive Role Model  Award: Gender

We’re one of Britain’s leading insurance companies with brands including Direct Line, Churchill, Privilege and Green Flag. We want to create a world where insurance is personal, inclusive and a force for good. And those aren’t just words. They underpin who we are and what we stand for – as a company that cares for our people, our customers, our society and our planet. That’s why we’re delighted to sponsor the National Diversity Awards – to recognise and celebrate the fantastic work of individuals and organisations across the country who are making a real difference to building a more inclusive and equitable Britain.

Avast Foundation

Sponsor of the Positive Role Model Award – LGBT

The Avast Foundation works to create a more equitable and free digital future by tackling issues of digital exclusion, removing barriers to digital access, and championing digital citizenship and civic participation. We are proud to sponsor the National Diversity Awards to help shine the spotlight on the organizations and individual change makers who are championing diversity, equity, and inclusion and making a measurable difference in their communities. As they work within our communities they inspire us all to think bigger and more creatively about how we can collectively build welcoming spaces and inclusive opportunities for everyone. We look forward to celebrating these positive role models and their successful strides toward a more diverse and inclusive society.

OVO Group

Sponsor of the Positive Role Model Award – Race, Religion & Faith

Happy. Respected. Supported. These are the things we want everyone to feel. Because at OVO you can be your whole self. No matter how you think, what you believe, who you love, how your body works, or what gender you identify as.

OVO is more than a company, it’s a movement of world changers. We have a strong vision to make zero carbon living possible and a plan to get us there; it’s called Plan Zero. And to tackle climate change, one of humankind’s greatest challenges, our people must be able to perform at their best.

This is why we’re working tirelessly to promote Inclusion and Diversity, in all sorts of ways; from tackling systemic issues, to challenging unconscious bias – we’re serious about giving everyone at OVO the same opportunity to thrive.

We are delighted to sponsor the National Diversity Awards in particular the ‘Positive Role Model Award for Race/Faith/Religion’. Recent events have shown us how much we need to come together to support people of all ethnic backgrounds and religions and we are honoured to recognise outstanding role models in this category.
