Communitas Awards, a program of the Association of Marketing and Communications Professionals (AMCP), announced PWI Construction as a winner of a 2021 Communitas Award recognizing the firm’s community service in 2020 and spirit of communitas, a Latin word that means people coming together for the good of a community.
Communitas Awards recognizes exceptional businesses, organizations, and individuals that are unselfishly giving of themselves and their resources, and those that are changing how they do business to benefit their communities. Communitas nominees are evaluated based on the extent and effectiveness of their program.
“By recognizing individuals, organizations, and companies for their volunteerism and socially responsible business practices, we are hoping to not only bring attention to great programs but are working with community-minded leaders to make the spirit of communitas an essential element of every business,” said AMCP Executive Director Ed Dalheim.
Communitas Awards was started in 2010 as an outgrowth of the pro bono recognition program of the AMCP a several-thousand-member group that honors creative achievement and fosters partnerships with charities and community organizations. As part of its mission, AMCP gives grants to community organizations and underwrites a large portion of Communitas expenses.
“Community service is central to our people-centered culture. Our community outreach programs are designed by our team members based on their areas of interest and that of their peers. This model helps us to serve the current needs of our community while supporting causes important to our employees. It’s an honor to be recognized in the international awards program for our philanthropy,” explains PWI Construction Talent Culture Manager Kristin Price.
