The 6th Edition of the 'Professionalism and Commitment' Awards coincides with the 30th anniversary of the beginning of Fundación Diagrama's activity. Thirty years of social work by all our workers for the well-being of people in vulnerable situations that we want to celebrate with a special national edition, which recognises a series of entities and professionals who have played a fundamental role in the construction of a more just, egalitarian and committed society throughout these decades.
Given the security measures that still need to be followed due to COVID-19, this time there was no in-person ceremony, but rather the Awards were held online.
