- Department/ agency award recognising a department or agency improving employment opportunities for employees with disability, LGBTI employees, Indigenous employees, and employees from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds.
- Individual award recognising an individual achieving change by championing equality and diversity, and demonstrating vision and leadership that contributes to genuine change.
