Due to the pandemic restrictions, the event will be closed. However, it is possible to watch a live broadcast of the event.

This is the ninth time that the Confederation of Icelandic Enterprise and the University of Iceland have joined forces to present the award. According to an announcement by these two parties, the number of categories in the Incentive Award has been increased this year. Now, there are three categories: equality, multiculturalism and disability. The reason behind the change is the intention to acknowledge developments in equality in a broader way.

The aim of the award is to draw attention to companies that have put equality at the top of their list of priorities and to encourage other companies to do the same.
