New College proud to be named as number 43 at the National Centre for Diversity.

New College Pontefract feature as 43 in the Top 100 Index from the National Centre for Diversity (NCFD).

The Top 100 Index highlights the very best of the UK across 600 organisations to celebrate commitment and excellence around equality, diversity and inclusion in the workplace.

Lauren Walker, Assistant Principal for Human Resources said: “This is a fantastic recognition. I am very proud to be part of the hard working team here at New College, where we champion and are hugely committed to equality, diversity and fairness. On behalf of the staff at New College, I want to say how delighted we are at receiving this.”

The Top 100 Index was launched as part of the National Centre for Diversity’s 10 year anniversary celebrations. The Top 100 was determined by using key data from the Investors in the Diversity or Leaders in Diversity diagnostics, which UK based organisations have completed. The results were entered into a computer system which generated the Top 100, using a percentage based matrix.

Chief Executive of the National Centre for Diversity, Solat Chaudhry, commented: “I want to offer huge congratulations to all of those who were shortlisted, they were all very deserving of this level of recognition.”
