Welcome to the ACT Inclusion Council. The ACT Inclusion Council is a Canberra group of business, government and community leaders that work in partnership with the community to develop initiatives that value and engage people with disability as customers, suppliers, employees and employers in business.
It is the conduit between business and government, supporting new and innovative projects and events that showcase business opportunities in the disability sector and create employment opportunities for people with disability.
Nominations for the 2019 Chief Minister’s Inclusion Awards are now open!
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.
Canberrans are encouraged to nominate the people, organisations or businesses who have demonstrated their commitment to welcome, support and include people with disability.
Nominations close Tuesday 8 October at 5pm.
