Partners& is proud to sponsor the Trade Association Forum’s Diversity & Inclusion Award

Partners& will be taking to the stage on 23 February to present the 2023 Trade Association Forum’s Diversity and Inclusion Award at the annual event taking place at The Brewery, London.

With a record number of entries, the 2023 categories were hotly contested. For the Diversity and Inclusion Award, judges were looking for the trade association that has shown a recognised commitment to creating and applying a greater awareness of the importance of diversity and inclusion in their sector and/or their association.

The finalists for the Trade Association Forum Diversity and Inclusion Award are the British Beer & Pub Association and Renewable UK.

Partners& is the insurance partner for the Trade Association Forum, the leading representative body for associations in the UK, helping members to engage, improve and lead in their sectors.

Partners& is committed to partnership – with our people and our clients. That means creating a workplace where people can be their best selves and thrive whilst bringing together the range of experiences to enable us to make more informed decisions in the way we service our clients. In sponsoring the TAF Diversity and Inclusion Award, we aim to support those organisations who have taken steps to instil equity in the workplace. We wish those shortlisted all the best on the night.
Phil Barton, CEO, Partners&

Emily Wallace, CEO, TAF said: “Trade associations have a vital role to play in promoting diversity for their sectors, so it has been encouraging to see such high-calibre entries for the Diversity & Inclusion Award for this year’s Trade Association Awards and to be supported by Partners&, a business committed not only to the association sector but to supporting diversity and inclusion in its own business and beyond.”
