The Chief Minister’s Inclusion Awards were held at a sold out gala event on Thursday 6 December 2018. The 2018 Winners and Commendations were presented with their Awards.  Find the full list of finalists here.

Each year, the ACT Chief Minister’s Inclusion Awards acknowledges the outstanding achievement of business, organisations and individuals who have demonstrated their commitment to welcome, encourage 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 five categories:

  • Recognising people with disability who are leaders in inclusion
  • Excellence in inclusion for mainstream services
  • Excellence in inclusive specialist disability services
  • Excellence in enabling inclusion through supporting people with disability
  • Innovation in design

An overarching Award for Excellence is then selected from award recipients. In 2018, this award went to Rebus Theatre for their innovative inclusion training programs.
