From championing equality as part of the Vote 100 celebrations, to setting up the new cross-government social mobility network, the inspiring shortlist of the 2018 Awards highlighted how the winners, and all those nominated, are doing amazing things to promote diversity and inclusion.
"The Awards are a brilliant opportunity to recognise and celebrate the achievements of civil servants championing diversity and inclusion.
"Congratulations to the talented winners, shortlisted candidates and all those nominated. Your work is helping us drive change and realise our ambition to make the Civil Service the UK's most inclusive employer by 2020.
"The Civil Service is transforming the way we attract, recruit and develop talented people from different backgrounds, and identifying more ways we can create a great place to work for everyone."
Congratulations to the winners, the shortlisted candidates and all those nominated for the 2018 Diversity and Inclusion Awards. Thanks to everyone who submitted a nomination for the 2018 Civil Service Diversity and Inclusion Awards. Together, you made it a really special event.
