Diversity Honoured

The Proud Scotland Awards are designed to celebrate the LGBTQI+ community by recognising the outstanding work and commitment of individuals and organisations within and supportive of our community in Scotland.

They honour and encourage all, north to south, who stand up for diversity, equality and inclusion.  Over the last two years we have awarded lots of very special people and organisations in recognition of their work and dedication to others.  We are delighted to be opening up nominations again for The Royal Bank of Scotland Proud Scotland Awards 2021 where more will be honoured for all that they do.

Educator Award

Education is the key to reducing bigotry in Scotland and as a nation we should be thankful to the work of teachers, educational establishments and all who work in the sector. Can you help us find someone who has played a role in helping to support the LGBT+ community by breaking down barriers – or maybe it is a school, college, university or apprentice scheme which has gone that extra mile to implementing an inclusive learning environment. Help us celebrate the amazing work that has happened by nominating your star now.
