WiF Ambassador Jacqui Oatley MBE highly commended at European Diversity Awards

Jacqui Oatley MBE - highly commended in this year's European Diversity Awards

The incredible work of Jacqui Oatley MBE to champion women in the football industry and her position as an inspirational role model has been recognised at European Diversity Awards, where she has been highly commended.

Women in Football Ambassador Jacqui was nominated by the public along with the likes of Sir Mo Farah, CBE and Nicola Adams, OBE, for the Sports Personality award, which was won by Paralympic equestrian Natasha Baker.

Linda Riley, who founded the European Diversity Awards, paid tribute to the winners. She said: “Everyone nominated for a European Diversity Award should feel proud, because they have contributed to making Europe a more accepting, diverse continent. We have made giant strides but, during this era of great uncertainty, there is still a lot more to do which is why these awards are so important.

"Not a year goes by when winners on this stage do not bring tears to my eyes. I hear stories from previous winners all the time who tell me that, as a result of these awards, companies have vastly increased their commitment to diversity, and I’m told that past winners are frequently invited to speak at events and pass on their diversity knowledge."
