Inclusion Award

The City of Ryde, Hunter’s Hill Council and Lane Cove Council have come together to offer an award in the Northern Districts Local Business Awards that recognises achievements in embracing inclusion.

The Inclusion Award celebrates local businesses that welcome people of all backgrounds and abilities.

A business may be inclusive if it provides products or services in a way that accommodates the diverse needs of customers and staff, so that more people can participate.

To be eligible for this award, businesses must operate in the Ryde, Hunters Hill or Lane Cove local government areas. They must also demonstrate a commitment to creating a welcoming and inclusive environment for customers and staff, and demonstrate how the business is adopting inclusive practices that go above and beyond.
