This is the 5th anniversary of our Best Energy Workplaces and GRIT Awards.
We aspire to discover and recognize individuals, teams, and companies who are doing extraordinary things in energy, climate, and sustainability. GRIT stands for Growth, Resilience, Innovation, and Transition. It's about honoring the difference-makers, the innovators, the mavericks, who are pushing back against adversity and making an impact on people and planet.
Individuals can be nominated in the categories of: Professional, Executive, Entrepreneur/Start-up, Ally, and Sustainability and Climate Champion. This year, we've also introduced a new award for GRITTY Girl to recognize a young girl who is currently taking action to enhance our energy future, either through an ongoing campaign or one-time project.
Teams or affinity groups who embrace inclusion and collaboration are also eligible to be nominated in our Group category. We're looking for people who understand the value of working together for the greater good. This year, we've also introduced a new Trailblazing Energy Superhero Award for spotlighting groups that are providing mentorship or outreach programs to youth.
And finally: Our Best Energy Workplaces Award honors those companies who are boldly stepping up to co-create safe and inclusive spaces. Eligible companies are the ones who have a deep vision of an energy future that will positively impact the world.
