The first half of 2022 has been rather busy for the WHU Center for Non-Profit Management and Digital Social Impact. Following a successful Digital Social Summit, held in hybrid format at the end of March, the Center has recently announced the Digital Social Award, scheduled to make its debut later this fall.
Working in conjunction with the German Foundation for Civic Engagement and Volunteer Work (DSEE) and ZiviZ, the WHU Center for Non-Profit Management and Digital Social Impact will have guardianship of the upcoming Digital Social Award, which will be given out for the first time ever later this fall. The DSA is designed to honor non-profits, unions, and initiatives exhibiting a strong commitment to the betterment of society through digital engagement. Established by Siemens, Capgemini, Orange Business Services, and AfG gGmbH in cooperation with Stiftung Bürgermut, the DSA recognizes efforts made in four areas, each endowed with an €8,000 cash prize: education and culture; sports and health; inclusion and workplace culture; and innovation and future. The hunt for diverse, digital, and socially beneficial initiatives is on, and interested organizations can apply for the award now through the official Siemens homepage until the end of June.
