The deadline for entries for the Recruitment Industry Disability Initiative (RIDI) Awards 2019 has just been extended to Friday 08 February at 6 pm.
Kate Headley, spokesperson for the Recruitment Industry Disability Initiative said:
"Once again we’ve been overwhelmed and inspired by the very high standard of entries for this year's RIDI Awards, and I’d like to thank all those who have already entered.”
"Recently, there has been several appeals for an extension to the deadline. The RIDI Executive Committee has considered these requests and unanimously decided to shift the deadline for all entries to Friday the 8th of February. By doing so, we hope that those who felt they didn’t have the capacity to complete an entry in time are given a chance to share their stories.”
All employers and recruiters are welcome to enter the awards, which celebrate the progress of organisations that break down the barriers facing people with disabilities in the recruitment industry.
The awards are the perfect place for inclusive employers and recruiters to share your stories of success in this area so you can inspire others and gain the recognition you deserve.
RIDI is a unique initiative to drive change in recruitment and remove the barriers faced by the millions of people with disabilities who are entering or progressing through the job market.
RIDI believes more needs to be done to build disability confidence into recruitment and employment strategies and actively campaigns to achieve this.
The RIDI awards are the recruitment industry’s only disability awards and form a key part of RIDI’s work, which is why we are proud to be a supporter of them.
