Trinity has moved 24 places up the Investors in Diversity Top 100 Index, a year after it was first included. The Investors in Diversity Top 100 Index is the National Centre for Diversity’s annual list recognising employers with excellent practices around fairness, respect, equality, diversity, inclusion and engagement (FREDIE).

Trinity has been included at number 60 in this year’s list after it became the first hospice to be included in the index at number 84 last year. Trinity was one of two hospices included in this year’s list, alongside Birmingham St Mary’s Hospice.

Trinity’s movement up the Index this year follows its recent achievement of Investors in Diversity at level two. Investors in Diversity is an equality standard awarded to employers by the National Centre for Diversity in recognition of an employer’s commitment to FREDIE methodology and practices throughout their workforce.

The Index was unveiled at the National Centre for Diversity’s annual Grand Awards earlier in January, where Trinity was also nominated for awards recognising innovation and the achievements of both its Investors in Diversity Steering Group and Trinity CEO Dallas Pounds.

Dallas Pounds, said:

“I’m thrilled to have the team’s hard work and commitment recognised in this way, especially as it demonstrates the improvements we have made in the last year to embed FREDIE even more across Trinity, to the point where good FREDIE practice is becoming second nature.

While external recognition like this is not the reason we are working so hard to promote FREDIE excellence at Trinity, it is a great way to showcase and acknowledge the work of our steering group, who are all involved voluntarily, and to celebrate the progress we have made, and will continue to make.”
