Who should enter?
The DiversitEV is designed to recognise EV-related companies, entities or other collectives that have really gone above and beyond in order to promote diversity in the workplace.
We want to hear specific details of how companies have gone about this, be it through hiring or training programmes, public awareness efforts, activism or any other recognised effort to promote diversity.
