Trust honoured to support awards focused on equality and diversity

We were honoured to be this year’s headline sponsor at a recent Bedfordshire awards ceremony, dedicated to supporting the Asian business community.

The Bedfordshire Asian Business Association is an open and inclusive group that helps businesses to make positive improvements and support their communities.

The awards evening, on 10th September, celebrated equality and diversity and was a unique opportunity for us to raise awareness of the Trust with a diverse group of people.

The Trust’s Equality, Diversity and Inclusion Manager, Navrita Atwal, had the privilege of presenting the award for Voluntary Organisation of the Year: “I was very proud to represent EEAST at the awards, and we’re looking forward to developing a close partnership with BABA to improve recruitment of a diverse workforce. 

“Our community ambassador engagement programme has already recruited a number of people who will be supporting us in reaching out to all communities.  We want to be an employer of choice where equality and diversity is at the forefront of everything we do.”
