The Irish Centre for Diversity runs the ‘Investors in Diversity Ireland’ initiative, Ireland’s first and only all-encompassing equality, diversity and inclusion mark. Companies that join the initiative are provided with a framework that offers tools to measure and improve their diversity and inclusion (D&I) policies and practices, whilst also recognising their efforts through accreditation at Bronze, Silver and Gold levels.
Congratulating Kedington on their achievement, The Director of the Irish Centre for Diversity, Caroline Tyler said: “Achieving Investors in Diversity Bronze shows that you have built a strong foundation that you can use as a platform to begin embedding Diversity and Inclusion into wider organisations systems.
