As well as a thriving awards programme, the Global Good Awards (GGA), sponsored by Revive, also boasts a stellar, 28-strong judging panel. Indeed, GGA has just been shortlisted as a finalist in this year’s Best Judging Panel and Process category* in the Award Awards 2019.
Karen Sutton, GGA’s Founder and CEO, commented: “We are delighted to be recognised for the quality of our judging panel and the robust and innovative processes we have in place.”
Our 2019 line-up comprises representatives from global NGOs, senior executives from major corporates as well as inspirational entrepreneurs. In fact, during a recent phone conversation about their upcoming submission with Karen, a spokesman from a UK-based building society commented: “Wow, that’s the most diverse judging panel I’ve ever seen!”
This year several of our judges are highly experienced in managing workplace diversity and inclusion too, having worked to create cultures that treat diversity and inclusion as two distinct elements and valuing both. It’s a topic very close to the heart of this year’s keynote speaker, Dame Inga Beale.
Now in its fifth year, the GGA has always been keen to promote a sustainable judging panel so around 75% of our judges have taken part in multiple years, and some who are taking a break this year – as they are on rotation – will return again next year. See who is on our panel for 2019.
Judges are chosen based on their experience in the sectors that our categories focus on and they are only allowed to judge a category in which they have specific experience. We don’t overload our judges either. They judge 1-3 categories with a maximum of 20 entries each and each category is judged by at least three judges.
*In the Best Judging Panel and Process category, we are up against The Quality Food Awards, The Publican Awards 2019 and The Wedding Industry Awards. The winner will be announced on 17 May 2019 – fingers crossed!
The Global Good Awards 2019 are closing 8 March 2019!
There are 13 categories to choose from including Environmental Behaviour Change, Sustainable Supply Chain and Good Employer of the Year. And remember entry fees are only charged when you submit your entry. There are no fees to pay for starting an application.
