EQUAL APPROACH IS RUNNER UP IN NATIONAL HUMAN RIGHTS AWARDS
 
Equal Approach, a leader in Diversity recruitment, has been named as a runner up in the Careers and Leadership category of the RADAR People of the Year Awards 2010, the largest human rights event of its kind in Europe.
 
The awards ceremony, which took place at Londons Battersea Evolution, and was hosted by the BBCs Cerrie Burnell, had a number of high profile speakers and presenters including Baronness Tanni Grey-Thompson, Iain Duncan Smith MP and John Bercow, Speaker of the House of Commons.
 
The RADAR People of the Year Awards celebrate the incredible people and organisations that have made real strides towards equality, empowerment and inclusion for disabled people in the UK, and the Careers and Leadership award is made to an employer, recruitment agency or other organisation/individual that has worked to enable disabled people to develop their careers. Finalists had to show strong evidence of enabling real career progression for disabled people and/or supporting disabled people to take on key leadership positions. The winner was the Chartered Institute of Housing, with Equal Approach, Lloyds Banking Group and the London Organising Committee of the Olympic and Paralympic Games amongst the runners up.
 
Other winners on the night included Arsenal FCs Disability Liaison Team in the Accessibility Provider of the Year category, How to Look Good Naked with a Difference in the Factual Media category, and the Channel 4 series Cast Offs, in the Fictional Media category.
 
Dawn Milman-Hurst, Managing Director of Equal Approach said, We were delighted to be finalists in this prestigious award which recognises our approach to ensuring that disabled professionals are supported to realise their full career potential and compete on a level playing field in any process. There is a huge amount of diverse talent which is not always embraced and our whole ethos is around removing any perceived barriers to achieve equality of opportunity.
 
Formed in 1977 as the Royal Association for Disability and Rehabilitation, RADAR is a national organisation run by and working for disabled people.
