WASHINGTON, D.C. (PRWEB) June 06, 2018
Keystone Policy Center, a national nonprofit organization, honored exemplary leaders at its 25th Annual Leadership Awards for their ongoing work to inspire their peers and others to reach common higher ground. The awards event, held at the Newseum, featured a moderated discussion on collaborative decision-making and problem solving.
“Throughout Keystone’s history, we have urged leaders in the public, private, and NGO sectors to work together to find collaborative solutions that deliver lasting results. Our awardees — this year and over the past quarter century of the Keystone Leadership Awards — not only heeded that call, but have joined us in embodying this fundamental idea,” said Christine Scanlan, President and CEO of the Keystone Policy Center. “Our awardees are each an outstanding example of Keystone’s mission in action — and proof that collaboration can lead to progress when all other efforts have failed.”
Keystone, a Colorado-based nonprofit organization founded in 1975, honored the following individuals as examples of its vision for individuals and companies rising above entrenched positions and reaching common higher ground:
- Louisiana Governor John Bel Edwards
- Paula Gold-Williams, President and CEO, CPS Energy
- Andrea Mitchell, Chief Foreign Affairs Correspondent, NBC News
- Andrew Steer, President and CEO, World Resources Institute
The 25th anniversary of the Keystone Leadership Awards also included tributes to past awardees.
Keystone established its Leadership Awards program in 1994 to recognize extraordinary leadership by individuals and companies whose work embraces the nonprofit’s model, spirit, and mission.
