Faculty members and special guests from King's College London came together to celebrate the remarkable, diverse and hugely impactful contributions that individuals and teams have made over the last year. 

One of the key themes that emerged from the Staff Survey last year was that People and Culture is really important to us at King’s. It is so important that we recognise the contributions those in our community are making. This is why we are actively embedding a positive and truly inclusive culture, where people feel respected, challenged and valued for what they do, and feel they belong. These awards are one of the ways FoDOCS are working to achieve this and we do have much to celebrate. 

Congratulations to all the winners on their success.
