The charity’s Leadership Programme beats strong competition to be crowned best in region at lavish ceremony.
Birmingham LGBT has won the 2018 Midlands Leadership Award for Best Leadership Programme. The ceremony, held at Edgbaston Stadium, recognised the achievements of individuals and organisations across the business community, and celebrated the positive difference outstanding leaders make by enabling others to reach their full potential in the workplace.
Collecting the award for its Leadership Programme – a course that equips LGBT leaders of the future with the skills, knowledge and confidence to excel in business – Birmingham LGBT ends what has been a successful year of accolades on a high, following their winning of a GSK King’s Fund Health Impact Award in May.
Alex Turner, Joint Managing Director of theBusinessDesk.com and Head Judge, said: “We were delighted by the number of exceptionally high-quality entries received right across the categories. Whatever the next 18 months have in store for us economically and politically, we can be confident that Midlands businesses have the leaders who can be resilient and fleet of foot in their response.”
Accompanied by representatives of organisations including West Midlands Police, the University of Birmingham, Lloyds Banking Group and creative technology company Vanti, Steph Keeble, Director of Birmingham LGBT, and Simon Hale, Treasurer, collected the award on Thursday 15th November.
Commenting on the win, Steph Keeble, said: “I am very proud of the work Birmingham LGBT has done to support LGBT leaders in the corporate, public and third sectors and was delighted to accept this accolade on behalf of the organisation. It is amazing our work has been recognised in this way.”
The ceremony, held at Edgbaston Stadium, benefited Birmingham St Mary’s Hospice.
