INFOGRAPHIC: 5 Characteristics of a Classy Awards Nominee

With the new year underway, we are excited to gear up for the 2016 Collaborative + Classy Awards, a one-of-a-kind three-day learning event in June showcasing the most innovative organizations in the social sector.

In addition to moving across the country to a new home this year, we’ve also 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, will use 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.
