A new category group for 2023 recognizes Thought Leadership innovation in strategy, development, and execution since the beginning of July 2020.
In addition to a number of new categories, a public voting component has been added. All organizations that are honored with Gold, Silver or Bronze Stevie Award trophies in the Company/Organization categories will automatically be included in People's Choice voting. People's Choice winners will receive a special People's Choice Stevie Award trophy allowing for honorees in the Company/Organization categories to have the opportunity to receive a second award, as voted by the general public worldwide.
