This award, sponsored by Colas Rail, will recognise an organisation that is going above and beyond to champion diversity and inclusion. The organisation must be able to demonstrate quantifiable, significant and verifiable steps to promote and achieve a diverse, inclusive and equitable workforce.
We are looking for organisations which are showing ambition through initiatives such as: joining industry-leading pledges and programmes, informing and educating their stakeholders, setting up recruitment drives for underrepresented backgrounds, encouraging employee-led initiatives, etc. The organisation must be able to provide evidence that diversity and inclusion are values core to its recruitment processes and wider company culture.
The awards are open to all French or British businesses active in the UK, and we encourage businesses from all sectors to apply, regardless of their size or their resources.
The initiative(s) put forward in the application must have taken place in France and/or in the UK.
Companies which have won a Franco-British Business Award in the past three years are excluded from applying.
Companies are welcome to apply in as many categories as they would like to.
Membership of the French Chamber of Great Britain is not necessary to apply.
Please note that the forms will be shared only with the French Chamber's team and the jury and will not be communicated with anyone else.
