“We were thrilled by the quality of submissions for last year’s inaugural DEI Impact Awards,” said Debra Chanil, Editorial and Research Director, Smart Energy Decisions. “It’s an honor to share the stories of these impressive energy and sustainability initiatives—and the people behind them. We look forward to continuing with the second year of this program.”

Nominations for the 2024 DEI Impact Awards close on June 21, 2024. An independent panel will judge submissions; winners will be notified in July.

The 2024 awards cohort will be celebrated during a presentation at the Net Zero Forum on September 18 at the Westin Westminster in Westminster, Colorado.
