The Inspire Awards - NEW DATE TO BE ANNOUNCED

Celebrating Diversity & Inclusion in UK Construction, Engineering & Housing

AWARD ENTRY: Most Inspiring Contractor

This category is open to companies and organisations within the construction, engineering & housing sectors.

We are looking for contractors working within the construction sector, large and small, which seek to create an inclusive environment, not just within the workplace but also through the projects that they deliver.


We want to see evidence that companies are contributing to a built environment that is accessible to all, as well as creating an inclusive environment in which all employees can thrive. Do you successfully attract staff from diverse backgrounds? Are you supporting people from hard-to-reach communities into employment?  Are you helping to remove the barriers that may be stopping people from pursuing a career in the sector?  Are you working with schools and social enterprises to offer opportunities to people? Do you support staff from all backgrounds to climb up the ranks? Is your workplace accessible to all? If you think you fit the bill and are a company that is leading the way on inclusion and tackling inequality, then we want to hear from you.

You may nominate the same company under multiple categories, but a separate nomination form must be completed for each category
