Facilitation Impact Awards

Honouring excellence in facilitation 

As a professional association with members in more than 65 countries, the International Association of Facilitators (IAF) is well placed to recognise the power of facilitation worldwide. For more than 20 years we have been strong advocates for the power of facilitation in helping organisations to address challenges and achieve results.

The Facilitation Impact Awards (FIA) honours organisations that have used facilitation to achieve a measurable and positive impact as well as the facilitator(s) who worked with them.

Nominate for a 2019 award

To nominate, prepare a submission and email it to FIA@iaf-world.org by 11pm Sunday 26 May 2019 (GMT).

See Facilitation Impact Award Guidelines for criteria.

IAF volunteer evaluators

Being an evaluator is an opportunity for you to support a global community of practice and learn more about how organisations and facilitators use facilitation and the IAF core competencies.

We are looking for IAF members to evaluate submissions in English, Spanish, French and Portuguese.

Evaluators need to be available:

  • 13-17 May to complete a practice evaluation and 90-minute training webinar (in English)—session times will be confirmed in late April
  • 27 May to 2 June to evaluate submissions—you can evaluate submissions any time that suits you during this period
  • 3-16 June to discuss scores with other evaluators—you will only need to do this step if there is a wide spread in the scores each evaluator gives a submission.

If you would like to volunteer, email FIA@iaf-world.org by Sunday 28 April 2019 and let us know which languages (English, Spanish, French, Portuguese) you can evaluate in.

Evaluators may be nominated in a submission for an award, but they are not allowed to evaluate submissions in which they are named.

The Facilitation Impact Awards Governance Policy includes information on probity requirements for the awards.
