One of the leading figures in the Network of Pakistani Organisations has been named Diversity Hero Of The Year.

Raza Sadiq, the Network of Pakistani Organisations Scotland Chair, received the prestigious accolade in front of 400 guests gathered for the ceremony, organised by the Herald and GenAnalytics in Glasgow on October 10.

The event showcased the companies, organisations and individuals across Scotland making a difference to their communities and workplaces by putting diversity and inclusion at the heart of what they do.

Sadiq is chair of the Active Life Club in Glasgow, which has used diverse sports as a medium to bring communities and service providers together.

He said: “This award was very emotional for me because it’s the area I have been trying to tackle for over 20 years. Being among those who have suffered challenges and inequalities and those who have worked to tackle them made me feel very honoured.

“Inequality is a lifetime challenge and this award is recognition for all the hard work and it gives me and others encouragement to go on fighting and challenging on behalf of those who are not able to themselves.”

Sadiq has been committed to fostering better community relations for over two decades.
He has used community development models to inspire others to become equality champions, acting as change-makers and advocates in promoting fairness for all.
