Congratulations to the winners of PR Daily’s 2017 Corporate Social Responsibility Awards.

The old-school corporate structure doesn’t cut it any more. Employees and consumers now support brands that take a stand. This year we found the organizations with the most impressive dedication to diversity and inclusion, education, public health and more.

Our winners used an annual report as a storytelling tool, put their work on display using video and visual design and held events to champion a cause. All of our winners let their passion for advocacy lead the way to huge success.
