But too often, it is drowned out by the bad behaviour of the few – bad behaviour that has stained the Square Mile. The idea of City Giving Day is to redress that balance and promote the activities that firms do to help people across London. “If we can get people to talk more loudly about what they’re doing for good causes, then maybe more people will get involved. We should take pride in all that this City stands for.” Of course, it wouldn’t be a real City do without an after party. Yarrow finished the day by presenting the awards at the Lord Mayor’s Dragon Awards, celebrating more good work in the Square Mile, at Mansion House. Happy City Giving Day, everyone!  BIG BUSINESS AND CORBYNITES BOTH GET DIVERSITY AWARDSAt last, hard-left activists and London’s biggest corporations have found something they can bond over – inclusion in the workplace. Bosses from big businesses rubbed shoulders with an eclectic crowd last night at the European Diversity Awards, as they battled it out for brownie points for working towards stamping out inequality in the workplace, with many City big-wigs getting gongs for their commitment to improving their firm’s diversity. Fiona Cannon, director of diversity and inclusion at Lloyds Banking Group, was named Diversity Champion of the Year for campaigning for a wider range of employees from all back­grounds, while a top award was also handed to Corbynite journalist Owen Jones at the prestigious event in London’s Natural History museum. Over 600 guests attended the event, presented by TV personality and former Pop Idol presenter Nicki Chapman. PwC scooped the Most Inclusive Employer accolade, while HSBC, picked up the Diversity Team of the Year award. Perhaps there is some common ground to be found between Capitalists and Corbynistas after all.  by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeMoneyPailShe Was A Star, Now She Works In ScottsdaleMoneyPailGameday NewsNASCAR Drivers Salaries Finally ReleasedGameday NewsSwift VerdictChrissy Metz, 39, Shows Off Massive Weight Loss In Fierce New PhotoSwift VerdictPost FunKate & Meghan Are Very Different Mothers, These Photos Prove ItPost FunMaternity WeekA Letter From The Devil Written By A Possessed Nun In 1676 Has Been TranslatedMaternity Weekzenherald.comMeghan Markle Changed This Major Detail On Archies Birth Certificatezenherald.comBridesBlushThis Is Why The Royal Family Kept Quiet About Prince Harry’s Sister BridesBlushEquity MirrorThey Drained Niagara Falls — They Weren’t Prepared For This Sickening DiscoveryEquity MirrorTheFashionBallAlica Schmidt Is The Most Beautiful Athlete To ExistTheFashionBall Share Lord Mayor tours London firms on City Giving Day last_img
