Sponsor of the Diverse Company Award

MI5 are delighted to be Gold Sponsors again of the National Diversity Awards in 2017. Our purpose is to help keep the UK safe, which of course must drive everything we do. This includes recruiting and retaining the best talent from all parts of society, and ensuring this diverse mix of people is able to work together in an environment where everyone has the opportunity to thrive, whoever they are. We are pleased to be able to convey our ongoing commitment to diversity and inclusion through our continued sponsorship of the Awards. As the UK's largest awards of their kind, we view them as an important way of recognising and celebrating the important work being done across the country to tackle issues of inequality and discrimination to deliver opportunity for all.
