Nominations now open for Bristol Diversity Awards 2019

By bristol247, Monday Jan 21, 2019

Businesses, organisations or individuals who champion various areas of diversity including age, faith, religion, disability, gender and sexuality can all be nominated for the Bristol Diversity Awards 2019.

The third annual awards ceremony will be taking place on May 18 at the Mercure Holland House Hotel in Bristol.

Organisers say that last year’s sold-out event was “a real testament to Bristol’s commitment to all strands of diversity with an array of local people being honoured”.
