It was a great night for Softcat on the 21st of October as we came home from The North West LGBTQ+ Business Awards at The Titanic Hotel, Liverpool with the Best Employer Award.
The North West LGBTQ+ Business Awards aims to recognise the creativity, ingenuity, and resilience of the LGBTQ+ community and its contribution to the economy of the North West of England.
“Softcat is fully committed to embracing diversity in its workplace and working with its people to achieve this. We’re incredibly proud to be awarded with “Best Employer” at the 2022 North West LGBTQ+ Business Awards. It’s amazing to be acknowledged as a great place to work by the LGBT+ community. There’s always more work to be done, and we have more events and initiatives planned for the coming year, but it’s a nice reminder to take stock of the achievements we’ve made to date.” - Simon Harrison, Commercial Solicitor and Pride network member
The evening was an opportunity to celebrate the amazing achievements of LGBTQ+ people in business and commerce in the North West region after what has been an unprecedentedly difficult twelve months following the Coronavirus pandemic. It was amazing to have Ben Mulford, Debra Coady, and Simon Harrison attend to represent Softcat from our Pride network and to accept this award.
