Open Leadership Awards Update

by Charlene Li

I’m very excited to announce that we have selected the winners for our first annual Open Leadership awards. We’ll be announcing the winners at our Rise of Social Commerce event on October 6 at 5pm Pacific, so stay tuned! You’ll be able to follow the award ceremony and conference online at UStream.

All entrants have now been notified, so if you have not yet heard from us, we encourage you to submit again next year; we’re sure that there will be some incredible innovations and progress to report between now and then.

While we originally intended to organize awards by industry category, in the end it made more sense to categorize them based on the award criteria: Innovation and Execution; Leadership; Creating Impact; and Overcoming Barriers. While we received some extremely impressive submissions, we ultimately selected the ones that jumped out at us as most unique and powerful in these areas. The winners were case studies that made us sit back and say “Wow.”
