WELCOME TO THE GG2 LEADERSHIP AWARDS 2021
THURSDAY 25TH FEBRUARY 2021 | VIRTUAL
Firmly established as the premier awards for inclusion, diversity and leadership in the UK, the GG2 Leadership Awards recognises Britain’s great cultural diversity. Over 700 guests from all walks of life come together, senior politicians, influential business leaders, and military personnel mix with celebrities from the arts, film, TV and sport to celebrate and recognise Britain’s most enterprising and talented black, Asian and minority ethnic high achievers.
Twenty years ago, the climate could not have been more different. Institutional racism had yet to be defined as a term, but we all knew it existed. There were very few or none black or Asian figures whether it be in policing, law, government or in the boardrooms of corporate Britain. It was in this backdrop that the GG2 Leadership Awards were launched - to shine a light on the extraordinary, hidden talent that lay within ethnic minority communities.
From medicine, the arts, law and the uniformed services to entrepreneurship and philanthropy, the greatest achievements of individuals are those that benefit us all. The GG2 Leadership Awards spotlights remarkable people who use their talents for the greater good. They come from all walks of life and contribute in many fields.
Our virtual awards took place on Thursday 25th February 2021, and told the story of the exceptional heroes of the Covid-19 crisis.
Be a part of our celebration of diversity in multicultural Britain.
