“Oscars for CEOs” Recognize Business Leaders Taking A Stand Online

March 2, 2020 GMT

Nominations open for 2020 CSuite Digital Leadership Awards, the first global awards for business influencers

NEW YORK, March 2, 2020 /PRNewswire/ - Nominations open March 2, 2020, for a first-ever awards program dedicated to business leaders and executives taking a stand on social media and digital channels — sharing views on company culture, the environment, politics, gender equality and more.

The 2020 CSuite Digital Leadership Awards recognize business leaders and influencers across multiple categories, from “Best Leader on Instagram” and “Leader Taking A Stand” to “Best Podcast.” The awards highlight the growing importance of CEO and corporate activism in a business climate where staying on the sidelines is no longer an option.

“We live in a new era where leaders can no longer operate behind the scenes” said Caroline Carter, cofounder of the CSuite Digital Leadership Awards. “From the #MeToo movement to the 2020 Election to debates about company culture and concerns around climate change, today’s business leaders are weighing in on social channels to share ideas and connect with customers, employees and the public in a more direct way.”

The awards reflect a larger shift in public demand for accountability and transparency from business leaders. While high-profile leaders like Patagonia’s Rose Marcario and Salesforce’s Marc Benioff are speaking out in greater numbers on digital channels, so too are frontline managers and bosses at organizations of all sizes. Indeed, nine of ten employees and three-quarters of consumers now believe business leaders should take the lead on change, according to a 2020 survey of 34,000 respondents.

2020 CSuite Digital Leadership Award winners will be announced on June 1, with judging by leading business editors, industry experts and business influencers. Other categories include Best Leader on LinkedIn, Twitter and Facebook, as well as Best Video Leadership and Best Blog or Op-Ed. Winners are highlighted in national press and featured in major media outlets. To apply, visit www.csuiteawards.com.
