Purpose Awards

Sponsored by Rocket Social Impact

Since 2016, ACCP has celebrated corporate social impact professionals serving as beacons of excellence in their field. ACCP’s Purpose Awards are the only awards program that recognizes individuals helping to catalyze change within their companies.

In addition to the three Purpose Awards recognized in past years, ACCP is excited to announce the addition of a new category, Corporate Social Impact Team of the Year. 

This year’s award categories are:

Champion for Change

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.

Trailblazer

Trailblazer is the senior corporate social impact department leader whose governance, strategy, and programs demonstrate significant business and social impact over time. 

Rising Star

Rising Star is a junior or mid-career professional in CSR/ESG whose work has created measurable impact inside and/or outside the company – without the benefit of positional authority.

Corporate Social Impact Team of the Year
