Best Contribution to Advancing Diversity Award

Award is for:

There are two categories of members who can be nominated. One is an individual who has made a significant contribution to supporting a diverse membership of the Welsh Liberal Democrats. The other is an individual who is a member of an under-represented or disadvantaged group who has made a significant contribution to the Welsh Party.

Description:

Diversity is to be viewed broadly, both in terms of under-represented groups and of disadvantaged groups. Disability, language, gender, ethnicity, LGBT+, religion, social and economic status, caring responsibilities, and many other factors can all impact on the individual’s experiences as members of the Welsh Liberal Democrats, on their likelihood of joining the Party in the first place, and on their likelihood of standing for office within the Party or standing as a candidate.

Nominations for this award will be welcomed on behalf of members who have made a significant contribution towards diversity. Some possible examples are:

  • Encouraging people of under-represented or disadvantaged groups to join the Party
  • Supporting people of under-represented or disadvantaged groups in standing for office within the Party or as Party candidates at any level. 

Examples of these could be anything from effecting change to overcome barriers experienced by people from under-represented or disadvantaged groups, to encouraging more women to stand as candidates, to making it possible for people with significant caring responsibilities to attend Party events, to recruiting new members from under-represented or disadvantaged groups, etc.

Nominations will also be welcomed on behalf of members who are part of an under-represented or disadvantaged group and who have made a significant contribution in any capacity to the Welsh Liberal Democrats, or who have overcome considerable difficulty or disadvantage in order to make their contribution.

How to Nominate:

Any member may make as many nominations as they wish. Nominations will close at mid-day on Monday 17th October.
