The Mary Seacole Trust has been shortlisted for the UK’s largest diversity awards. MST, the charity which promotes the legacy of Crimean War nurse Mary Seacole, has been shortlisted in the Community Organisation Award for Race, Religion & Faith category at the National Diversity Awards 2017.
Charities and role models from across the UK will gather at the breath-taking Anglican Cathedral in Liverpool on September 8th 2017 for the UK’s largest celebration of Diversity, showcasing the outstanding achievements of those who have demonstrated their devotion to enhancing equality, diversity and inclusion in today’s society.
Over 22,000 nominations and votes were received this year, paying tribute to grass root communities nationwide.
MST chair Trevor Sterling said: “We are thrilled to be shortlisted for such an important award.
“NDA recognition is an important milestone as we start work on our key projects – educating school children about Mary Seacole and encouraging diversity in leadership within both the public and private sectors.”
The prestigious black-tie event is definitely one to mark down on your calendar and provides recognition for excellence regardless of race, faith, religion, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, age, disability and culture.
Designed to highlight the country’s most inspirational and selfless people, the NDA’s are supported by the likes of Stephen Fry, Adam Hills and Sir Lenny Henry amongst many.
