The organisation have carried the symbol since 2010, but recently underwent a review to look at the organisations continued approach to the five commitments to good employment practice which the symbol represents.

Operations manager at The Women’s Organisation Lynn Kelly, who was instrumental in gathering evidence for the assessment with JobCentrePlus representatives, said “We were delighted to be able to show our commitment to the ethos that this award represents. We are keen to continue to show our commitment to employ, keep and develop the abilities of disabled staff and will display our award symbol proudly.”
