All our events would not be possible  to be ran without our continuous support from Playtechand William Hill. With this in mind, it was amazing to see how many companies from Gibraltar got involved in promoting diversity in the workplace.

We were also honoured with the presence of Honourable Minister of Equality, Samantha Sacramento, as she extends her support to all the teams that would like to explore ways of taking their social ideas further.
