The Inspire Awards - Celebrating Diversity & Inclusion in UK Construction, Engineering & Housing

AWARD ENTRY: Most Inspiring Rising Star

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

The Rising Star Award recognises individuals at the early stages of their careers who, regardless of gender, race, religion, sexual orientation, age, disability, culture or any other irrelevant difference, are reshaping expectations and demonstrating exceptional talent and ambition.

We are looking for leading innovators and stand-out performers across the sector in this category which seeks to identify the “ones to watch” in construction, engineering and housing.
The award highlights individuals who, through their ambition and drive to deliver truly outstanding work, are breaking down barriers to inclusion while also demonstrating a commitment to promoting equality and diversity in the work place.

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