1. Measurable social impact: We consider the reach, nature, and durability of the company's impact on one or more specific societal problems. This category receives extra weight.
2. Business results: We consider the benefit the socially impactful work brings to the company. Profitability and contribution to shareholder value outweigh benefits to the company's' reputation.
3. Degree of innovation: We consider how innovative the company's effort is relative to that of others in its industry and whether other companies have followed its example.
4. Corporate Integration: We consider how integral the initiative is to a company's overall strategy, and how well that strategy is communicated through the ranks and elsewhere.
Please describe the nominated initiative in those terms using the form below. The deadline for submissions is Friday, July 20, 2018. Please contact McKenna Moore, at email@example.com, with any questions, using the subject line “CHANGE THE WORLD QUERY.”
