The Simone Joyaux Memorial Award
Simone was my mentor, colleague, and friend. She died in May 2021. A fierce advocate for excellence in the nonprofit sector, she was a globally renowned consultant, author, educator. A true thought-leader, she shifted multiple narratives, and modelled engaging, enabling, and the power of cage-rattling questions.
She was instrumental in my professional formation and leadership. From philanthropy and governance to organizational development and social justice, much of my work today is informed by the seeds she planted in me. And I know there are countless others who had this same privilege.
