The Business & Finance Awards, in association with KPMG Ireland, celebrated a ‘New Era of Excellence’ at Dublin’s Convention Centre on 12th April, with 1,000 of Ireland’s business, political and social leaders in attendance at the celebrations.

Northern Trust was awarded the Diversity, Equality and Inclusion Award at the Business & Finance Awards on April 12th. Meliosa O’Caoimh accepted the award, which was presented by Eimear O’Halloran, Senior Director Client Success EMEA at Indeed.

“This means so much to our teams at Northern Trust”, said Ms. O’Caoimh.

She went on to say that the award represents everything that the company stands for.

Our culture is very important to us and our work around diversity, equality and inclusion is central to everything we are doing. 

“We don’t just talk, we walk the talk”, she said.

The Diversity, Equality and Inclusion Award was sponsored by Indeed.

The awards were the first to be hosted in person since 2019 due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The night was a huge success with several familiar faces in attendance such as former Taoiseach Enda Kenny. The Business & Finance Awards celebrated its 47th year this year.

Business & Finance was launched in 1964 as Ireland’s first business magazine with the Awards programme established a decade later. The Business & Finance Awards is Ireland’s premier business awards programme and includes among its previous honorees outstanding leaders of our time across business, politics and wider society. This includes former United States President Bill Clinton, former British Prime Minister Sir John Major, former President of Ireland Mary Robinson, former Secretary-General of the United Nations Kofi Annan, President Michael D. Higgins, former ECB President Mario Draghi, former Taoiseach Enda Kenny, Senator George Mitchell, and Sir Bob Geldof, among others.
