With the new year underway, we are excited to gear up for the 2017 Collaborative and Classy Awards, a one-of-a-kind three-day learning event in June showcasing the most innovative organizations in the social sector.
In 2016, we redesigned the nomination process and the organization profile in order to give the judges the most thorough and accurate representation of the Classy Awards Finalists.
To determine the Classy Awards Winners, the judging panel, our esteemed Leadership Council, used the Nomination Profiles to evaluate the following components:
- Scale, scope, and leadership expertise of the problem being addressed
- Innovative approach
- Ability to solve the problem
- Organizational effectiveness and resource management
Beyond the judging criteria, we believe that organizations leading the sector and affecting change tend to share similar traits. This infographic describes what Classy believes are the common characteristics that set innovative organizations apart.
Meet and collaborate with an elite group of innovative programs recognized as Classy Award Winners. This prestigious opportunity identifies drivers of dramatic social change and affords organizations the incredible opportunity to come together and unite as thought leaders from across the globe.
