It was of course a real honour to win these awards, and recognises the work we have already undertaken in embracing diversity and inclusion within our organisation in the last 12 months. I believe though that we are only at the beginning of our inclusion journey at Yorkshire Building Society and that there is more to do and we will keep at it as we are capable of being even better in this space.
