Equality North East


Since 1997 Equality North East has worked regionally and nationally to help achieve equality in employment, learning and services and has had the privilege of working with some fantastic organisations and individuals who are committed to creating a fairer future for all.

Equality North East is proud to be hosting the 2019 North East Equality Awards.
Now in its sixteenth year, Equality North East, a company owned by Gateshead College will be joined by over 300 people, who will join together to celebrate in this 50th anniversary year of the Stonewall Riots which paved the way for LGBT civil rights internationally on the evening of 24th October at the Grand Hotel, Gosforth in Newcastle.

The event recognises the achievements of local organisations, individuals and groups in embedding inclusivity through good equality and diversity practices daily.

This year we will honour those who have pioneered in leading the way to a fairer future for all, together with those who continue to strive for, and achieve, fairness in an increasingly competitive economy, those who demonstrate that diversity and inclusion make sound business sense and make a real difference to the lives of people from all walks of life.

We look forward to seeing you soon!
