We’re delighted to share the news with investors that Signature CEO Lawrence Kenwright was named Inspirational Role Model of Year Award at the recent European Diversity Awards ceremony on 16th November at the Natural History Museum in London.
Since its launch in 2010, the European Diversity Awards has recognised individuals and organisations that have made an outstanding contribution to equality, diversity and inclusion across Europe. These amazing awards bring together under one roof, the leading movers and shakers in business, media and politics.
Lawrence Kenwright was honoured to receive the award which celebrates someone in business who is contributing to developing a culture that allows the most skilled and talented people to succeed, regardless of gender, race, physical abilities or sexual orientation.
Over the years, Lawrence and Katie Kenwright have supported causes such as Liverpool Pride and the British LGBT Awards, as well as creating countless jobs in Liverpool and other major cities.
On the night Lawrence thanked the awards ceremony, stating that one of his biggest achievements is creating apprenticeships:
“We’ve created 87 apprentice positions and out of those positions we created 80 jobs, I’m really proud of the fact that we’ve done it with local people in Liverpool. To win a European Diversity Award is a huge honour. At Signature Living, we understand the importance of equality and inclusion and the impact it has, both within the company and the communities in which we operate.”
