Diversity is an increasingly important topic for businesses to be considering, and the National Diversity Awards showcase brilliant individuals and best practices from across the UK. Lancashire entrepreneur Lee Chambers has been nominated for the Entrepreneur of Excellence category, which celebrates those in business who are championing diversity and building a business that is having a positive impact on both their sector and community.
The Breathtaking Liverpool Anglican Cathedral will play host to this year’s awards, to be held on 16th September 2022. Britain’s most inspirational and selfless people will come together to honour the rich tapestry of our nation, recognising individuals and groups from grassroots communities.
The prestigious black-tie event recognises nominees in their respective fields of diversity including age, disability, gender, race, faith, religion and sexual orientation.
Lee is the founder of Essentialise Workplace Wellbeing, based on Ribbleton Ln, and provides wellbeing and inclusion training to companies across the UK. On being nominated, Chambers said, “I’m passionate about making an impact through both my business and the social impact work I do personally. Everything that we do, from being a trustee of a dementia charity to working in SEND schools, from supporting Black social enterprises to speaking on gender equity, I believe inclusion has to empower all under-represented and marginalised groups to increase opportunities and break down barriers. This is something so close to my heart as an autistic Black man who manages a chronic illness, and to be recognised nationally is a real honour.”
