It is a generally acknowledged that three-quarters of the world’s major conflicts have a cultural dimension. Bridging the gap between cultures is therefore essential for promoting peaceful co-existence, stability and development.

 

Diversity Role Model Award celebrates outstanding leaders who have made commendable contribution towards a more inclusive and inter cultural Ireland and communities that have harnessed the genius of all its citizens irrespective of race, faith, religion, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, age, disability and culture. The Award ceremony highlights the richness and diversity of the Irish society and raises awareness of the importance and benefits of bridging the gap between cultures.

 

On Saturday, May 30th, these role models will be honoured at an award ceremony for their outstanding achievement in making a positive difference in the lives of the different strands and identities that make up a society and their devotion to enhancing equality, diversity and inclusion.
