Genius Within are excited to announce the date for the 2023 Celebrating Neurodiversity Awards. Next year we will be hosting the fourth annual awards on September 28th, which is during National Inclusion Week. We are busy planning and organising another fantastic hybrid event where we can all come together and acknowledge the talent, joy and positive change that our community generates.

Nominations will open in mid-March, so it is time to get your thinking caps on and keep your eye out for anyone from the neurominority community that is deserving of recognition or any projects, services and businesses that are doing great work.

This year we have introduced a new category, the Young Achiever Award is to recognise neurodivergent individuals under the age of 21 who have overcome barriers to achieve something big. This could be starting their own club, finding success in a new hobby, public speaking or maybe petitioning their local MP. Whatever it may be we want to celebrate it!

2023 Awards categories:

  • Stereotype Buster Award
  • ND Achiever Award
  • Best Education Provider
  • Young Achiever Award (new for 2023)
  • Best Assistive Technology
  • Inclusion Project Award
  • Inclusive Employer Award
  • ND Research Project
  • Rising Star Award
  • Community Choice Award

More information about venue, judges, sponsors and how to nominate will be coming in the new year, so keep an eye on our social media!
