Nominate a TEAM who leads by example and gets the job done.  A team who represents what GRIT stands for Growth, Resilience, Innovation & Talent.

Receiving a GRIT award is one of the highest honors because it’s a nomination from peers; from someone that has seen first-hand exceptional behavior and ability. Always reliable and always working to be better, GRIT award nominees are examples for those looking for role models to show them anything is possible. 

To qualify for a team GRIT Award, we are looking for groups who recognize the value of collaboration and inclusion. They support diversity while achieving tremendous success collectively for their company. They embrace inclusion and use it to their advantage to problem-solve and generate new and innovative solutions for their company. 


The only requirement when nominating a team is that they must be in the energy sector (corporate, entrepreneur, student or even someone unemployed) and accomplishing specific things that embody GRIT (growth, resilience, innovation/new ways of working, inclusion, and talent).
