The Top 100 Index was launched as part of the National Centre for Diversity’s 10 Year Anniversary celebrations. The Top 100 was determined by using the key data from the Investors in the Diversity or Leaders in Diversity diagnostics, which UK based organisations have completed. A minority of organisations also completed a separate diagnostic, if they had not completed Investors in Diversity or Leaders in Diversity. The results were entered into a computer system which generated the Top 100, using a percentage based matrix.
The NCFD Grand Awards 2016, also featured awards from a number of individual nomination categories and organisational categories.
