Celebrating DEI advancement

Join The Celebration

Impact Awards

Diversity and inclusion has become a critical priority for businesses today. But the companies that are successfully turning their DEl "talk" into meaningful—and ongoing—action are the ones that are empowering the right voices along the way.

The inaugural 2023 I&D Impact Awards spotlight outstanding organizations, leaders, and their teams who are trailblazing systemic and scalable solutions for more equity in the workplace.

Join us on March 22, 2023 to celebrate the progress our shortlisted organizations and individuals have made and feel inspired as we collectively build a future where everyone thrives.

“Unless organizations embrace and understand [the importance of diversity and inclusion], 15 years from now, they’ll be in the dustbins of corporate history.”
- Les Brun, Sarr Group Chairman and CEO, Sarr Group
