Diversity in Development

UDIA National’s new national Diversity in Development award acknowledges, encourages and most importantly, promotes diversity in development within the property industry across Australia. The aim of the award is to:

  • Identify diversity in development companies which are leading in our sector
  • Recognise the positive influence diversity in development has within the organisation and the broader development industry

Nominee companies should be able to demonstrate diversity in development within their organisation or within the development industry as a whole, and should provide examples in which they have incorporated diversity in development into their workplace, the industry or in relation to a specific project/issue.

Nominee companies must demonstrate how they have had a positive influence on diversity in the development industry. The Award winner will be selected based on a genuine diversity in development contribution to the development industry.
