Award for Excellence in Social Inclusion
This award recognises a company or business that has proactively taken steps to involve people from South Australia’s most disadvantaged groups in their operations, assisting them to take advantage of the economic and social benefits the sectors have to offer.
By developing programs and implementing workplace practices, businesses in this category will be judged to have demonstrated leadership and a commitment to ‘best practice’ that has or will increase opportunities for those in South Australia’s most disadvantaged groups.
