Awards of Success

 

There are many awards – in Canada, and around the world – that recognize employers for their commitment to diversity and inclusion. Yet there are relatively few honours that acknowledge the people who work tirelessly to help make their workplaces, and Canadian society, more inclusive.

CCDI’s Awards of Success have been designed to recognize individuals who have made a significant contribution to diversity and inclusion here in Canada – whether internally to their organization or externally to the community at large. To learn more about our past winners, click here.

The winners of the CCDI’s Awards of Success will be announced at our gala, BLOOM!, on Thursday, April 27, 2017 in Toronto.
