InterAction Humanitarian Award
Members of our community often surmount significant obstacles to carry out their work effectively. With increasing needs in existing and new humanitarian crises, our resources have been more strained than ever. InterAction seeks to honor these individuals, their bravery, and their commitment to the most vulnerable populations. The Humanitarian Award is meant to recognize an individual or individuals whose work reflects important leadership qualities in humanitarian practice such as courage, initiative, creativity, grace under pressure, integrity, and sacrifice.
Nominees will have made significant contributions in any of the following areas: COVID-19 pandemic response, disaster relief, emergency humanitarian response, human development, assistance to displaced populations, civil society, gender, economic development, health, environment, education, population, or public policy.
