Equality, Diversity, and Inclusion is at the heart of great business. Companies around the world now recognize that it is the rich diversity of a workplace that creates innovation and helps modern companies to thrive. Beyond simply inclusion companies are now very aware that it is in the diversity of ideas and backgrounds that the future of innovation lies. We are aware that across different organisations in Taiwan, some fantastic, innovative work in equality, diversity and inclusion is taking place.
A Diversity Award, open to Taiwan-based organisations from both the private and public sectors and under the banner of the British Chamber of Commerce in Taipei Better Business Awards, will provide a great platform to celebrate and share the achievements and learning from organisations in this important area. It will also, more crucially, become a valuable tool to acknowledge the organisations and individuals excelling in the area and to recognise the impact that their work has on their organisations but also on the wider communities and on society at large. Submissions can be made in the form of an individual or a team submission, but all have to be made under the name of a specific company or organisation.
