DMC Named Finalist in Two Industry Awards
At the 2023 joint luncheon for PR Daily’s Nonprofit Awards and Ragan Communications’ CSR & Diversity Awards, the DMC was celebrated as a finalist in two categories for our work over the last year in support of diverse founders.
PR Daily’s Nonprofit Awards “celebrated the people, teams and organizations whose work built awareness and drove results for important causes” and as Ragan CEO Diane Schwartz stated, “This year’s PR Daily Nonprofit Awards finalists demonstrate how communicators can drive change by telling and amplifying the stories of real people facing real issues.” The DMC was a finalist for the Corporate/Nonprofit Partnership of the Year category in recognition of the work that our agency partners do in support of our organization. The DMC’s inclusion as a finalist in this category spotlighted our work alongside major brands and organizations such as the Wounded Warrior Project, Allbirds, and Amazon Prime.
Ragan Communications’ CSR & Diversity Awards “celebrated an impressive group of communicators and campaigns who prioritized allyship with their communities, put equity at the forefront of their hiring practices, launched unprecedented partnerships and alliances with other organizations, and much more.” For the Ragan awards, the DMC was runner-up under the DE&I-focused category of Allyship. An impressive group of brands and agencies were honored for inclusive campaigns that made an impact on underrepresented communities and as Ragan CEO Diana Schwartz noted, the awards finalists “demonstrate how communicators are not only telling stories about their DE&I progress, but setting strategy across functions that generate real change and accountability across industries.”
We are honored to have received both of these acknowledgments and congratulate all of the other brands, agencies, and organizations that are also doing such important work when it comes to driving meaningful change across a variety of worthy issues, particularly DE&I. As we reflect on all that we’ve accomplished in our 3+ years of operation, recognitions like these only underscore the importance of the impact we’ve made thus far, and validate our unwavering commitment to championing diversity, equity, and inclusion in the business world.
Thank you as always to our agency and corporate partners who have joined us in our mission, and to PR Daily and Ragan for continuing to shine a light on the work being done in this space. If you’re interested in getting involved with the DMC, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
