    Dear colleagues,


    I encourage you to apply for the Research Impact on Practice Award. The award, now in its ninth year, recognizes peer-reviewed research that has important implications for practice. The research can focus on any dimension of social or environmental sustainability. Articles must have been published during the previous calendar year, either online or in hard copy.


    The award is sponsored by the Network for Business Sustainability and the Organizations and the Natural Environment (ONE) Division.


    Please consider submitting your work for this year's award. Submissions are due April 30. At least one author needs to be an ONE Division member.


    The winner will receive $500 cash and a trophy to be delivered at the ONE business meeting. The research will be promoted broadly through NBS (see our description at the end of my note).


    Last year's award went to Wren Montgomery and Tina Dacin for their research on the coalition that worked to stabilize the City of Detroit's faltering water system. Read the NBS article about their work: Big Sustainability Challenges Need Broad Coalitions.


    It's so important to recognize the work we do to solve some of the greatest challenges our world faces. This award seeks to do just that. Find out more about past winners – and apply for the 2021 award
