Read about what made Ruth an award winner...

Ruth, a Home Group customer from the North West, won our 2016 Equality and Diversity Champion award for promoting equality and diversity in her community.

She is the chairperson of her local disability group and shares her story and experiences as an Orthodox Jewish woman with hundreds of our customers, clients and colleagues as part of Home Group’s Human Library and Role Models initiative.

“I was immensely flattered and pleased to receive this award. The work I have done and continue to do around equality and diversity means so much to me. Winning felt like extraordinary validation from Home Group. It was amazing.”

“Getting this award was seriously unexpected! I didn’t know I was up for it and I remember saying to the people I was with that they shouldn’t get their hopes up because I never win anything!”

Ruth is described by those who know her as a truly magnificent woman who is helping us to fight stereotypes and discrimination and spread the word about equality and diversity everywhere!
