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 2021 award 

To nominate:

A non-refundable nomination fee of US$200 is payable for each submission. If an IAF member is nominated as a facilitator in the submission, no nomination fee is payable.

To learn more about nominating for an award:

  • watch our information session with past Platinum awardee Paolo Martinez, CPF
  • download the slides from the session with tips for preparing your submission.

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.

If you would like to volunteer, email FIA@iaf-world.org 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.
