Castro Valley, CA, Sept. 21, 2023 – Blue Beyond Consulting was named a Finalist in the Thought Leadership Campaign category in the 20th annual Stevie® Awards for Women in Business, and ultimately will be a Gold, Silver, or Bronze Stevie Award winner in the program.
The Stevie Awards for Women in Business honor women executives, entrepreneurs, employees and the companies they run – worldwide. The Stevie Awards have been hailed as the world’s premier business awards.
Gold, Silver, and Bronze Stevie Award winners will be announced during a gala event at the Marriott Marquis Hotel in New York City on Friday, November 10. Nominated women executives and entrepreneurs from around the world are expected to attend. The event will be broadcast on Livestream.
More than 1,500 entries were submitted this year for consideration in more than 100 categories. Blue Beyond Consulting is a Finalist for Thought Leadership Campaign of the Year Entitled “Business as a Force for Good Thought Leadership Campaign.” We are the only finalist in this category.
Blue Beyond — and specifically Founder and CEO Cheryl Fields Tyler — are being recognized for an in-depth research study the company conducted in 2021 (“Good for Me, Good for Us, Good for the World: A New Agenda for Business Leaders”) as well as a 4-part series in Forbes, several keynotes, and media interviews focused on the research study findings.
“I’m absolutely thrilled and deeply honored to learn that we are a finalist for a Stevie Award in the Thought Leadership Campaign category,” Fields Tyler said. “This study is focused on helping business and HR leaders understand the new landscape of employee expectations post-pandemic — and what we can do to respond effectively to those expectations and build organizations where both the business and people thrive.”
Finalists were determined by the average scores of more than 200 business professionals around the world, working on six juries. Their scores will also determine the Gold, Silver, and Bronze Stevie Award placements that will be revealed at the 20th annual awards dinner and presentations in New York.
“In its 20th year, the Stevie Awards for Women in Business received an impressive collection of remarkable nominations,” said Maggie Miller, president of the Stevie Awards. “We look forward to celebrating our 20 years of recognizing the outstanding achievements of women in the workplace in New York on November 10.”
“The central finding of our study is that people prefer to work for companies that are a force for good,” Fields Tyler added. “Being a force for good includes making commitments and taking action on societal issues like sustainability and diversity — but that is not sufficient. People are looking for employers that prioritize employee physical and mental wellbeing and that deliver a supportive, inclusive, and high-performing culture — and they make decisions about where they work and how much discretionary effort they give with this in mind.”
