This award is given to a person who goes above and beyond to affect change in Canadian society as it relates to diversity and inclusion, or human rights and equity. This work can either be paid or volunteer, and may focus on any dimension of diversity.

NOTE for 2022: With lockdowns projected to continue across Eastern and Western Canada and the uncertainty which continues to stem from the COVID-19 pandemic, CCDI has decided to suspend the annual Awards of Success for 2022. We recognize and salute the practitioners, professionals and organizations who have continued to make tremendous efforts with respect to inclusion, diversity, equity and accessibility work in the last year under very different and trying circumstances. 

Nominee criteria

  • A nominee can be working in the area of diversity and inclusion, or human rights and equity in the community, either in a paid or volunteer capacity.
