Residents can nominate either by post, online or by picking up and dropping off a nomination form at any of the county libraries.
-Nominations close on 24 January 2014.

Diversity Hub is a Leicester-based charity that trains and supports people to be leaders.

We empower people to make a positive difference to themselves, their families, friendship circles and wider communities.

We celebrate the diversity of British society. Our programmes reflect this and where necessary challenge discrimination.

Diversity Hub’s vision is of a society where we all recognise our capacity and responsibility to be leaders, wherever we are, and have the confidence and insight to act in the interest of ourselves and others.
