Centro wins diversity award
West Midland’s transport authority, Centro, has won the Diverse Company in the Public Sector category at the Excellence in Diversity Awards in Manchester. Hosted by BBC Breakfast business presenter, Steph McGovern, the ceremony saw the organisation praised for putting diversity and inclusion at the heart of public transport services and employment practice. This included development of fully accessible facilities such as state-of-the art bus stations, and accessibility aids, such as its bus hailers. Over the last ten years, 55 community projects have been funded through the Transport Regeneration Fund, which has resulted in Centro partnering with more than 120 organisations and 63 match funders to implement a range of pioneering initiatives.
