What are the IAP2 Core Values Awards?
The IAP2 Core Values Awards are another way to help raise the bar in the field of public engagement: a friendly competition to encourage new approaches and innovative uses of existing ones. Each year, IAP2 and its affiliates around the world recognize leaders in the profession; in 2014, IAP2 Canada inaugurated its own Core Values Awards.
The awards go to projects which best demonstrate IAP2's Core Values and P2 professionals can learn from one another and be inspired to keep raising their own standards.
Each year, IAP2 Canada presents the Core Values Awards, honouring the “best of the best” in public engagement. Due to travel and gathering restrictions caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, the Core Values Awards Gala was adapted to an online celebration, via Zoom.
