We’re very proud that our Future Leaders of Nottingham programme beat off competition from 24,584 nominations to make it through to a shortlist of just 124 in this year’s National Diversity Awards.
Representatives from the project went along to the award ceremony on Friday 14 September to join in a national celebration of diversity – including current and past Future Leaders April Chung, Elira Mano, April Holmes, Mick Graham, and Jazz Hayer, together with Imogeen Denton from Nottingham City Council, Michael Henry from Communities Inc, Anita Hodson from Nottingham City Homes and our CEO Cherry Underwood.
Future Leader Jazz Hayer, Watch Manager for Prevention at Nottinghamshire Fire & Rescue Service said:
“I was honoured to have been invited to attend and represent my Service and felt privileged to be amongst some great and like minded colleagues from the Future Leaders programme. I was totally humbled by the many different nominees as well as the winners of the awards, they really do highlight how many people do so much great work for some of the most vulnerable or disadvantaged members of our communities and society.”
