SQA is proud to once again be supporting the Herald Diversity Awards. The awards are a fantastic opportunity to celebrate the success of organisations who have embraced diversity.

Social enterprises across Scotland are recognising the benefits of inclusivity, and the Diversity in the Third Sector category shines a light on some of the best examples.

As sponsors of the category, SQA had the privilege of announcing the well deserving finalists at the glittering awards ceremony.

Nominated for the awards are SMARTStems, who bring together colleges, schools and industry to promote access for all into STEM (Science Technology Engineering and Mathematics). Also nominated are The Health and Social Care Alliance Scotland. They are a voice for the disabled, championing their right to live as equal and active citizens. Our third category finalists, The Scottish Centre for Personal Safety, offer practical advice to empower individuals to live safer lives.

We were delighted to present the award to The Scottish Centre for Personal Safety.

Steve Borley, Head of Strategic Planning & Governance at SQA said, "Tonight has been a fantastic opportunity to celebrate the individuals, businesses and organisations across Scotland championing diversity. They are ambassadors of the benefits that can be realised when everyone in our society has the opportunity to fulfil their ambitions, aspirations and potential.

“Our Diversity in the Third Sector finalists are inspirational, and it has been great to hear about social enterprises recognising that everyone has skills to offer. I'd like to congratulate all the finalists and in particular the category winner, The Scottish Centre for Personal Safety, on their success."
