On Saturday, 30th September 2023, nearly 200 pre-eminent inspirational individuals working for the betterment of society gathered at the FICCI auditorium for Nexus of Good’s Second Annual Awards ceremony in New Delhi.

The ceremony showcased the good work they have been doing in various sectors directly affecting ordinary people’s lives. These outstanding leaders, who are either individual path-breakers or represent organisations adopting innovative methods for the good of society, have been drawn from the four corners of the country, some from far-flung areas. The diversity on display, both in terms of geographical reach and spheres of operation, demonstrates the multiplicity and pervasiveness of good work happening in the country.

The purpose of the ceremony was to recognise, appreciate, and disseminate the good work that is taking place all around us. While there were multiple entries for participation, the focus was on awarding individuals and organizations who have been taking initiatives backed up by positive impact, that are replicable and scalable. Initiatives were selected by an eminent jury on the basis of a well-established and transparent selection process. The selection criteria included some key aspects like – the relevance of the initiative in today’s time, geographical reach, beneficiary reach, impact of the solution, methodology, and innovation.
