A new awards initiative has been launched to celebrate ‘levelling up’ champions across the UK, and you’re being asked to make your nominations.
As a partner organisation, we’re working with the Levelling Up Awards team to recognise people and organisations that are committed to boosting opportunity and being truly purpose-led and help spread the word about the awards.
MPs, and people from businesses and universities throughout the UK, are now being asked to make their nominations for the 14 different award categories, which focus on equality of opportunity at key life stages.
The deadline for nominations is 20 April and the awards will be broadcast online on Friday 29 April. Who will you vote for?
Categories are as follows:
- Strong foundations in Early Years
- Successful school years
- Positive destinations Post 16+
- Right advice and experiences
- Open recruitment
- Fair career progression
- Widening access to savings & credit
- Good health and wellbeing
- Extending enterprise
- Closing the digital divide
- Infrastructure for opportunity
- Building homes & sustainable communities
- Harness the energy transition
- Achieve equality, through diversity & inclusion
These categories are based around the ‘Levelling Up Goals’ launched earlier this year by former Education Secretary Rt Hon Justine Greening, which provide a benchmark for activity focused on driving equality of opportunity from early years through to careers, alongside barriers such as the digital divide, health and infrastructure.
For more information about the Levelling Up Awards 2021 and to make your nomination please visit www.levellingupgoals.org/nominate by no later than 20 April 2021.
We would ask that if you’re making a nomination, please could you reference Make Happen where appropriate.
