That this house celebrates the outstanding achievements of all those individuals and organizations who received special commendations during the APPG for Inclusive Entrepreneurship’s Recognition Award’s Ceremony that was held on the 17 November 2020 as part of Global Entrepreneurship Week particularly: Laura Draper and her ethical clothing company Gooseberry Pink, Sara McKee for her contribution to the Arts, James Holt for his contribution to music, Monzur Miah for his entrepreneurship in setting up Monty’s Flowers, Helene Martin-Gee for her work towards equality for women in enterprise, Jane Cordell for championing disability rights, Grant Logan for his work around digital innovation and education, Yemi Jackson for her work on equitable recruitment, Steve Hopwood for his contribution to transportation and motorsport and Lady Sharon Farley Mason for her work in redefining and glamorising mobility aids; recognises the broader contribution of disabled entrepreneurs to the UK economy; and notes, with regret, that many people have immense entrepreneurial talent and potential largely left untapped by Government initiative, calling on Government to support inclusive entrepreneurship in rebuilding the economy.
