Kathy Caton, presenter and trainer at RadioReverb, has been shortlisted for the ‘Positive Role Model – LGBT’ award at the National Diversity Awards 2015. RadioReverb, Brighton’s community radio station, are proud that one of their best loved hosts will join charities and role models from across the country for the UK’ Largest Diversity Awards.
Kathy, who hosts ‘Out in Brighton’ – Brighton’s only dedicated LGBTQ show, was shortlisted from over 20,000 nominations and votes this year for her work profiling key LGBT figures and highlighting the work of emerging LGBT musicians and artists in the city. She explained, “I’m so proud to be recognised for this award and am humbled at the idea of being a role model for a category which means so much to me. I’m so grateful to RadioReverb for being so supportive of LGBTQ shows and giving me the platform to promote the diverse nature of the city and the wonderful communities across the area.”
The National Diversity Awards culminate in a prestigious black tie event, hosted by TV personality Brian Dowling, which provides recognition for excellence regardless of race, faith, religion, gender, identity, sexual orientation, age, disability and culture.
Microsoft will be just one of the brands supporting a skyfall of diversity talent alongside Barclays, The Army, Financial Ombudsman Service, Liverpool City Council, Penna, Mouchel, MI5, PwC, ThoughtWorks, Transport for London and The Open University.
Designed to highlight the country’s most inspirational and selfless people, the National Diversity Awards are supported by the likes of Stephen Fry, Brian Blessed, Adam Hills and Ade Adepitan amongst many.
Comedian and actor Stephen Fry said, “Four years on and The National Diversity Awards are continuing to have a positive impact across the whole of the UK. The awards have grown, and with it, so has the vast array of unsung diversity heroes being recognised nationwide.
“It is crucial that we challenge discrimination head on, and the NDA’s unite those that dedicate their lives to the cause. Long may this continue.”
