SENSATA TO BACK BELFAST MELA 2019
Northern Ireland’s favourite family get together and largest celebration of cultural diversity, the Belfast Mela is delighted to announce that Sensata Technologies will be principal sponsor for 2019.
Sensata Technologies is one of the world’s leading suppliers of sensors and controls employing more than 1,200 people in Northern Ireland at its sites in Antrim Technology Park and Carrickfergus. Last month the company picked up three awards for Equality and Diversity in the workplace at the NI Northern Ireland Equality and Diversity Awards.
More than 25,000 people visit the Belfast Mela each August and this year’s festival promises to be the biggest ever on Sunday 25th August, 2019.
Adriana Morvaiova, Team Development Coordinator and Chair of ACE Network, Sensata Technologies says:
“We are delighted to become a principal sponsor of the Belfast Mela this year, as diversity in our workplace is very important to Sensata. This is a perfect partnership as both brands are committed to celebrating the best of our communities in Northern Ireland. We look forward to developing opportunities for our employees to connect with each other to encourage and support a culture of inclusion.
“We have exciting plans to get involved with this year’s festival in Botanic Gardens with a special Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM) Zone aligned to the work of the Sensata Foundation that aims to empower the next generation of engineers. Our staff will be part of this extraordinary celebration of cultural diversity through music, dance, food and fun for all the family which has captured the hearts of the Northern Ireland people. “
Nisha Tandon, Executive Director of Arts Ekta and founder of the Belfast Mela said:
“Sensata is a globally outward company and a huge supporter of celebrating diversity in Northern Ireland through its Diversity Charter and local Appreciating Cultural Exchange (ACE) network. We are delighted to welcome them as principal sponsor of the 13th Belfast Mela which underpins their commitment to equality and inclusion in the workplace.
“More than 300,000 people have visited the Belfast Mela over the years and this year we want to entice more people to come for the first time and experience all Belfast Mela has to offer.”
