The Champion Awards are a community-driven celebration of the people and organizations that champion equity and diverse leadership across workplaces. They were born two years ago on the heels of our current President’s first year in office; a scary, uncertain, divided time in our nation. Our goal was to celebrate the good in the face of all that was terrifying; to shine a light on the heroes who unite us, who champion others, who move us forward.
Today we face a very real, rapidly escalating global pandemic. Our lives are disrupted because people’s lives are at stake. More than ever before, fear and uncertainty rule the day. And in the face of all this fear, we believe that there has never been a more important time to celebrate the good.
That’s why we are counting down the days to the third annual Champion Awards and Gala. And this year, in addition to our usual award categories, we will present awards to the heroes, recognized and unsung, who are rising to the occasion amidst the ongoing COVID-19 outbreak.
We invite every single person in the Pacific Northwest to submit a nomination, to celebrate their own efforts and others. We are all hungry to recognize the good in others, to parlay the championship we’ve received into bigger and better outcomes for more than just ourselves. Championship is compounding. It’s how we change the world. It’s what we need today.
COVID-19 Update: The Champion Awards will be moved to a later date. Nominations open soon.
