Champion for Change Nomination

CRITERIA

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 driving the business case, expecting 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, and thereby create company-wide adoption of the strategy; increase financial, human, and in-kind resources; and provide 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). The leader’s portfolio goes well beyond the social impact function. The awardee may a leader who does not have functional leadership of CSR or ESG in their portfolio, yet adds value to, champions, and supports the company’s commitment to the work and to the CSR professionals executing it. While CSR and/or ESG may be one of multiple functions reporting into this leader, there must be another executive-level direct report who oversee the function(s) to quality. 

This leader shows commitment to driving their community forward by tackling and advancing relevant and current topical issues within CSR and ESG including racial equity.
