The IWBI Community, Portfolio and Chairman Awards
Submitted by International WELL Building Institute
‘Tis the season for celebration. And, for a remarkable year with milestone achievements. At IWBI, we celebrate with our community to recognize all they’ve done through our annual Celebration of Leaders. Individuals and organizations from around the globe are leading the charge to revolutionize the impact our buildings, organizations and communities have on health, equity and quality of life.
We recognize our 2021 class of WELL Portfolios, WELL Faculty, WELL Advisors and WELL Accredited Professionals (WELL APs) for the enormous contributions to our shared work. Our 2021 award winners have influenced WELL’s progress through action, feedback and proactive support. This is also an opportunity to recognize the IWBI Task Force on COVID-19 and Other Respiratory Infections for coming together to inform new strategies and WELL Building Standard applications relative to the pandemic.
“Every one of our award recipients has been at the forefront of a movement that is putting people-first places at the heart of our response to the pandemic and beyond,” said IWBI President and CEO Rachel Hodgdon. “Thanks to their continuous advocacy, deep engagement with their own communities and their passionate leadership for health and well-being everywhere, the WELL community has become a powerful force making better buildings, more vibrant communities and stronger organizations a fundamental part of our future. We extend our congratulations and gratitude to all.”
