Touchstone has been shortlisted for the Diverse Company category at the National Diversity Awards 2018.
Over 20,000 people submitted nominations for the awards this year.
Amongst those being honoured are freedom fighters, domestic violence campaigners and trans rights activists, all of whom work tirelessly to combat injustice and discrimination in very different ways.
Designed to highlight the country’s most inspirational and selfless people, the NDA’s continue to gain endorsements from high profile figures such as Stephen Fry, Sir Lenny Henry CBE and Graham Norton.
Radio 2 presenter and Scissor Sister Ana Matronic will host this year’s ceremony alongside television presenter Brian Dowling. Reflecting on the forthcoming celebrations, Ana said; “I’m delighted to be hosting the 2018 National Diversity Awards in Liverpool for the second year in a row. Last year’s event was a true celebration of diversity across every area and nothing gives me greater pleasure than being able to be a part of this prestigious event! I can’t wait to meet all of the nominees and winners!
Liverpool, I’ll see you in September”.
Paul Sesay, Founder and CEO of the National Diversity Awards added “An overwhelming amount of nominations and votes were received this year, and I know our judging panel had an incredibly difficult task of whittling down the nominees to create an outstanding shortlist. So many heartfelt testimonies really showcased how these people and rganisations are having a profound impact on the lives of others, and I applaud them for their dedication to each specific cause. Congratulations to all of our shortlisted nominees, it is a privilege to recognise your bravery, resilience and courage and I am honoured to share this with the nation. I look forward to congratulating you in person in September”.
