Inclusion Awards Sponsors' LunchShare Event on Facebook Share Event on Twitter Share Event on LinkedIn
Awards are integral to so many aspects of our lives. From kindy kids getting the stars and stamps and recognition for just about everything to the gongs from the GG that are a stamp of excellence to wear with pride.
In the ACT the one night of awards that gives so much pleasure and acknowledges the tough road dealt to the recipients is the Chief Ministers Inclusion Awards now in its 12th year and growing and expanding across an inclusive range of areas. And the pleasure they bring to those least likely to be awarded by our society is a joy to see.
Faye Minty of the ACT Government’s Community Housing was happy to relate that joy at the Sponsors’ Lunch at Restaurant 86, explaining that the acknowledgement of the work done in this area for those with disabilities was unexpected but so appreciated.
I’ve danced the night away with them, sung along to some extraordinary musicians, marvelled at the diversity of entertainment and shed more than a tear or two with the recipients of these Inclusion Awards and feel humbled every year.
