The P3 Impact Award was created by Concordia, the University of Virginia Darden School Institute for Business in Society, and the U.S. Department of State’s Office of Global Partnerships to recognize and honor leading public-private partnerships (P3s) that improve communities and the world. Inaugurated in 2014, the P3 Impact Award is presented each fall at the Concordia Summit in New York, New York. The award seeks to highlight leading practices and actionable insights in the P3 arena. For this award, a P3 refers to any cross-sector collaboration that features public, private, nonprofit, or non-governmental organizations and addresses societal problems.
The Darden School Institute for Business in Society aims to be a leading global catalyst and convener of thought, information and action at the interface of business and society, and to promote the development of leaders to positively impact society through their roles in business.
The Office of Global Partnerships (GP) is the center of excellence for collaboration between the U.S. Department of State, the public and private sectors, and civil society. Launched in 2008 on the recommendation by the Advisory Committee for Transformational Diplomacy, GP builds and facilitates partnerships that leverage the creativity, innovation, and core business resources of partners for greater impact.
