The 2021 BME Awards
The Tees Valley BME Awards provides an essential and well-deserved platform for service providers and community members alike to share in this unique experience to celebrate achievements across the board from personal achievements to collective success for organisations who have advanced the opportunities for BME communities and demonstrated positive change.
Our Annual awards ceremony scheduled for 27th November 2021, will continue to build on the success of previous years and will bring together yet another year of keynote speakers, to celebrate BME achievement within Tees Valley and showcase the diverse talent we are proud to host within our local authority areas.
Black and minority ethnic communities still suffer huge disadvantage and discrimination, we need a long-term coordinated and comprehensive approach to reduce the inequalities which exist. A year after the brutal murder of George Floyd and #BLM Global movement, we must show our solidarity and stand against racism in all it’s forms, the Tees Valley BME Awards and it’s partners will highlight the outstanding work for this campaign by having a special award for those who have tirelessly sought to tackle discrimination. We will also recognise community champions who have supported BME groups in Tees Valley within the pandemic and helped to improve health outcomes, this year’s event will reflect the challenges and provide a platform for change.
The Awards are a firm favourite and significant occasion which has opened up opportunities and provided a platform to spread a positive message. This year’s awards will continue to recognise those individuals and promote the phenomenal work that they do amidst a Global pandemic.
This year the celebration will be held on the 27th November 2021 at the Jury's Inn Hotel in Middlesbrough, we cannot wait to showcase the amazing talent and progress individuals and companies have made in a year like no other, let’s celebrate together!
