The ASU Knowledge Exchange for Resilience is seeking nominations for its 2020 Recognition of Resilience awards. The awards honor Maricopa County groups or organizations that have helped our community become more resilient in the face of adversity.
This year, community champions have adapted to countless pressing issues, including the pandemic’s health effects, the economic shock of safety closures, and the unacceptable reality of social and racial injustice. Champions in the public, private, and nonprofit sectors have worked daily to address these shocks and deserve recognition.
The community is encouraged to participate in the nomination process and share stories of inspirational groups or organizations for their inspirational efforts to help build community resilience. KER will award and recognize three outstanding groups. All nominations, including self-nominations, are invited. Multiple submissions are permitted.
- Adaption: The demonstration of flexible, innovative and creative approaches during a time of rapid change.
- Equity: The improvement of the distribution of power and resources.
- Social Cohesion: The strengthening of how communities connect or respond to challenges or opportunities together.
