Northampton College has become the first college in the East Midlands to be awarded the Investors in Diversity (IiD) standard, in recognition of the continued commitment it has shown to promoting inclusion, equality, and diversity.
The College has shown continued dedication to the active promotion of diversity within the organisation, and – with the construction and implementation of a Single Equality Scheme – has become one of only ten colleges in the country to achieve the IiD standard, awarded by the National Centre for Diversity.
The standard helps organisations adopt and develop a set of characteristics and behaviours which can lead to real and sustainable gains through culture movement. The award will help the College to further develop and sustain an inclusive and adaptive organisational culture and environment, as well as a providing a helpful method of measuring success.
