External Judging Panel:

How are the winners by panel selected for the Canadian SDG Accelerators awards?

The GCNC has developed evaluative criteria and made an initial screening of the applicants to shortlist 10 applications for external judges review (5 large firms, 3 SMEs, and 2 non-profits). Based on the evaluative criteria and weighting system provided by the GCNC, the external judges then provide the GCNC with their assessments of the final 10, and the GCNC then reviews these assessments and on that basis the GCNC selects the final winners.
