2023 Inspiring Change Awards

The Inspiring Change Awards recognise and celebrate organisations and individuals within the construction and built environment sector that have created more inclusive cultures through activities to support workplaces, education of the current and future workforce, and the community.

The Inspiring Change Awards were introduced in 2016 to recognise organisations in the sector that can demonstrate they value and promote inclusion and diversity in the workplace and wider community. The awards highlight organisations that understand the broad scope of diversity, nurture a culture of fairness, inclusion and respect, and have taken active steps to ensure equal opportunity in how they operate.

Award winners are announced at the annual conference
