Civil Service Awards 2019 winners

Civil Service Awards 2019

We were delighted to sponsor the Civil Service Diversity and Inclusion Award 2019. This Award recognises real achievement and success at all levels of the Civil Service. 

This year’s winner of Civil Service Diversity and Inclusion Award 2019 was Bristol Race Network.

The Bristol Race Network have made an outstanding contribution in championing HMRC’s ambition for a more inclusive workplace. The cross-directorate Network commenced in January 2018 and has since played a pivotal role especially when recent racial incidents were reported in HMRC in Bristol.

By engaging Network members it enabled the business contain the situation and avert damage to the Department’s reputation. The safe forum allowed discussion of common issues, provided advice and support from peers and offered insight to help senior leadership understand the issues. This was influenced and driven from our BAME members who were encouraged to speak openly about the challenges they were facing in the workplace because of their Race.

Congratulations to all the 2019 winners
