2023 Award Application
The Champion for Change is a top-level company executive who uses their political capital, influence, and actions to drive buy-in, resources, and engagement from other executives, employees, and community leaders, for the company’s ESG and corporate social impact work.
This award recognizes those who champion their company’s commitment to excellence in corporate social impact by advancing the business case, urging measurable results, and demonstrably committing to corporate social impact both inside and outside the company.
They are a true champion and advocate for the work, thereby creating company-wide adoption of the strategy; increasing financial, human, and in-kind resources; and providing thought leadership that advances the company’s social impact.
This leader is a senior executive in the company (CEO, CFO, or other C-Suite executives). While CSR and/or ESG may be one of the multiple functions reporting to this leader, there must be at least one or two levels between the CSR/ESG function and this leader (if those departments report to them) to qualify.
This leader shows commitment to driving their community forward by tackling and advancing relevant and current topical issues within CSR, ESG, and racial equity.
The individual can be an ACCP member or from a non-member company.
