I-Day Grant Disability Inclusion Grant Chief Minister's Inclusion Awards

Nominations for the 2019 Chief Minister’s Inclusion Awards are now closed!

The Chief Ministers Inclusion Awards (CMIAs) provide acknowledgement of the outstanding achievements of businesses, organisations and individuals who have demonstrated their commitment to encourage, welcome and support people with disability in their workplace, business and community.

The Awards will align with International Day for People with Disability in early December and will acknowledge inclusive leaders across four categories:

  • Recognising people with disability who are leaders in inclusion
  • Excellence and innovation in community access and inclusion
  • Achieving inclusion through supporting the independence and wellbeing of people with disability
  • Championing rights protection and justice

An overarching Award for Excellence is then selected from award recipients.

The awards will be announced at a gala night at the Great Hall, Parliament House on Thursday 5 December 2019, from 6.30pm-10.30pm.

For more information about the awards or the gala night, go to the ACT Inclusion Council website: Link
