Forum shortlisted in National Diversity Awards 2014

8 August 2014

We are delighted to have been shortlisted in the National Diversity Awards in the category Community Organisation Award for Race, Religion & Faith and would like to thank His Honour Judge Charles Bloom QC who nominated us.

The National Diversity Awards are the UK’s largest diversity awards, with globally known sponsors including Microsoft, PricewaterhouseCoopers, Lloyds Banking Group, British Sky Broadcasting and the Secret Service MI5 to name just a few of them.

Over 21,000 nominations were received this year paying tribute to inspirational individuals and groups nationwide that have dedicated their lives to enhancing the equality agenda.

Jonny Wineberg, our Jewish Co-Chair, said “This is not only a great honour for those involved in The Muslim Jewish Forum and a recognition of our work but also a statement about the importance of maintaining community cohesion in troubled times. Whilst members of our Forum may differ in political views, we maintain a respectful and friendly dialogue and look to be an example to our respective communities of how to discuss differences as well as enjoy our similarities.”

Mohammed Amin, our Muslim Co-Chair, said “In my lifetime, Britain has become a vibrant, diverse society where people originating from all around the world, with many different native languages and religions, are building better lives for themselves and their children. I am proud that the Muslim Jewish Forum is playing its part in uniting our society by building bridges between the Muslim and Jewish communities in Manchester.”

Heather Fletcher, our Company Secretary, said “I was thrilled to find out that our Forum was short listed in these prestigious awards. In the light of the recent conflict in the Middle East, it is more important than ever for our Forum to continue working together, concentrating on our many similarities and things which unite us and ensuring there is mutual respect and understanding in our communities here in Manchester.”

The winners in all categories will be announced at a black-tie event on Friday September 26 at the prestigious Hurlingham Club in London.
