New National Awards for Disability Leadership – Nominate Now!

National Awards for Disability Leadership

The National Awards for Disability Leadership recognise and celebrate the extraordinary contribution and leadership shown by disabled people and our organisations in Australia today.

These Awards reflect what is important to disabled people and the ways that we are effecting change and pursuing equality for our community. They recognise outstanding achievements by individuals, or disabled people’s organisations, who have significantly contributed to advancing the status of disabled people.

The Awards will be delivered across seven categories for outstanding achievement or outcomes by disabled people, reflecting the diversity of our community, and the intersectional nature of our lives.

The Awards are proudly presented by the Disability Leadership Institute, Australian Federation of Disability Organisations, and Disabled People’s Organisations Australia.

National Awards Ceremony

The National Awards for Disability Leadership will be presented during a live global webcast (captioned) on Monday 3 December 2018 from 12.30 to 2 pm AEDT.
