Why the Non-Awards were created
We love creating connections between people and projects and raising awareness of the positive social change being made in businesses and communities.
We hate awards events that are so big that it’s hard to make conversation or meet new connections.
We don’t like shortlists, because the process is too long and often feels unfair. Anticipation is built, but those who don’t win leave feeling disappointed.
We’ve had enough of dinners with melon and dry chicken and limited options for people with special dietary needs.
It’s not about the winning, it’s the taking part that counts.
So we’ve created our Non-Awards! Instead of shortlists, on the night we will simply showcase one individual or organisation from each of the five categories.
We’ve taken this approach because we feel there’s more value in raising awareness of your social impact initiatives and helping you to make the right connections before, during and after the event.
That’s why we’re asking you to nominate a woman who deserves recognition or share your story – from today!
On the night, there will be storytelling, entertainment and meaningful conversations over a tapas-style menu devised by young people from aspire-igen.
