About the National Diversity Awards

Founded in 2012, the concept of the National Diversity Awards arose when Founder, Paul Sesay and his dedicated team identified an urgent need for more positive role models to be actively promoted, with the aim to empower and inspire the wide breadth of diverse communities across the UK.
