She has received an award in the financial services category which is based on the impact on the business and their sector, and achievements in driving the equality agenda within the business and beyond.
Christine said: "I'm delighted to win this award, but I regard it as a recognition of what the business has achieved, not just my own contribution. Everyone in the Options team believes strongly in the principle of equality and we are doing everything we can to promote positive change within the sector.”
