Direct Line Group celebrate role models at the National Diversity Awards

Posted by Direct Line Group at 06:17 PM

Direct Line Group was the proud sponsor of the ‘Positive Role Model for Gender’ award at the National Diversity Awards on Friday.

The Positive Role Model Award for Gender was presented by Jennifer Thomas, Head of Financial Communications here at Direct Line Group,  and was won by Dr Sylvia Forchap-Likambi who is the CEO of Voice of Nations. Voice of Nations is a non-profit organisation looking to transform the lives of girls and women. Dr Sylvia has coached, supported and inspired over 500 entrepreneurs, thousands of women and relentlessly empowered many to come out of addiction and depression to get into training, employment and leadership roles.
Talking about the awards Jennifer said: “It was truly inspiring to be surrounded by so many people who are pushing the boundaries by embracing diversity in all its glory as well as trying to implement change. It was an honour to represent Direct Line Group and for our business to be able to present such a prestigious award.”
Sponsoring this award is just one of the ways that we’re focusing on diversity and inclusion in Direct Line Group. Next week we’ll be sponsoring an event as part of the Dive In festival and we are also hosting a Creating Inclusive Cultures event in Leeds next month.
