FTAdviser is proud to announce the winners of the 2022 Diversity In Finance Awards.
Now in their fourth year, these awards aim to showcase and drive best practice in diversity, equality and inclusion across regulated financial services companies in the UK.
The winners were announced at a glitzy champagne reception and dinner on the rooftop of Bracken House, the FT's historic headquarters, and entertained by award-winning comedian Daliso Chaponda.
Guests also heard from keynote speaker Samuel Clague, founder of the Stephen James Partnership, on why DE&I matters to businesses both large and small.
Below are the winners of this year's DIFAs; a special supplement featuring case studies of shortlisted, highly commended and winning entries will be published later today (Friday July 1).
