There are many awards – in Canada, and around the world – that recognize employers for their commitment to diversity, equity 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 were designed to recognize individuals who have made a significant contribution to diversity, equity and inclusion here in Canada – whether internally to their organization or externally to the community at large.

Nominations were accepted in the following categories: 

  • Diversity and Inclusion Practitioner of the Year
  • Senior Executive of the Year
  • Community Contributor of the Year
  • Employee Resource Group of the Year
  • Employer Initiative of the Year

NOTE: Due to the uncertainty which stemmed from the COVID-19 pandemic, CCDI has decided to suspend the annual Awards of Success for the time being. We recognize and salute the practitioners, professionals and organizations who have continued to make tremendous efforts with respect to diversity, equity and inclusion work in the last few years under very different and trying circumstances. We plan to re-visit the Awards in 2024. 

Any further updates on Awards of Success will be communicated via our website and newsletter.
