We are very proud to be sponsoring the Ihsan award for Excellence in Diversity and Inclusion at this year's Islam Channel Business Awards.
The awards ceremony will be hosted by the BBCs Asad Ahmad.
The Islam Channel Business Awards were due to take place in 2020, but were postponed for two years because of the pandemic. They offer a place to celebrate the best of Muslim entrepreneurial talent.
There are 15 original awards, which companies were nominated for in 2020. The list is below, and you can see the companies and individuals which have made the final for each award here.
The Ihsan award for Excellence in Diversity and Inclusion is one of three new awards being presented for the first time at this year's ceremony - as a result it is one of the awards that is still accepting nominations up until Friday 14th October.
Ihsan is an Arabic term for excellence; for doing something in the best way possible. This is a special award, open to any non-Muslim business which makes Muslims feel genuinely welcome by ensuring that they are included in all aspects of business life.
At WuduMate we feel passionate about this mission. For the last 15 years, we have been assisting businesses, and the managers and designers of public buildings, with multi-faith spaces, and how they can be designed and fitted out in a way to make the daily Muslim pre-prayer ritual as comfortable and convenient as possible.
As our founder Nigel Bromilow said "WuduMate would certainly have entered this new award in 2022, but it is a great honour to be asked to present it to another company that is joining us on this path."
The other new awards that are still open for nominations are as follows:
This award is for businesses founded since 2019 or born from the pandemic.
An award for businesses that have demonstrated resilience and innovation during the pandemic
You can nominate a business for one of the three new awards by filling in the Nomination Form on or before Friday October 14th 2022.
We are very much looking forward to attending the Islam Channel Business Awards ceremony, to meeting the inspirational Muslim business leaders of our time, and celebrating those businesses who are joining us in trying to make the business world a better place for Muslims.
