The SIP Distinguished Fellow and SIP Fellow Awards are given out once a year at the GSIF Gala Dinner to honour leaders in Social Entrepreneurship and Innovation worldwide. The programme was started in 2008.
The SIP Distinguished Fellow Award honours legendary leaders whose illustrious lives have positively influenced lives across generations and communities around the globe. The Distinguished Fellow motivates collaborations and inspires extraordinary innovations across sectors. SIP Distinguished Fellows are outstanding role models and stalwarts of SIP’s community of changemakers in shaping a more inclusive, sustainable, and mindful world.
The SIP Fellow Awards recognise outstanding and high achieving individuals who are creating systemic change in the community that they live and work in. Role models in their own fields, these individuals are thought and action leaders who are shaping the future in their own way and doing what they do best. SIP Fellows are stalwarts of SIP’s community of changemakers in shaping a more inclusive, sustainable and mindful world.
Social Innovation Park first presented the Friend of SIP Award in 2007 to corporates, organizations and individuals who have contributed significantly towards the growth of the social entrepreneurs and innovation. These individuals and organizations saw tremendous potential in collaborating with social entrepreneurs/innovators and conscientiously pledged their support and resources in making them a success. Friends of SIP believe in SIP, and collaborate with SIP to build a more inclusive, sustainable and mindful world.
