It's important to recognize the champions among us.

Apply for WCWI’s 2020 Leaderboard: Champions of Employee Wellbeing by telling your courageous story.


Opportunities to be courageous are all around us. These opportunities are not always in our comfort zone and they may not be easy, but there is reward in the risk taking. Every courageous choice we make is a choice to learn, grow, and step into possibility.  These possibilities lead us to taking action in pushing a boundary, trying a new strategy, challenging the status quo, and using our voice. 
We see how you have been called to be a fierce advocate for the wellbeing of your employees. Through the uncertainty of a changing environment and the wide-ranging impact of an ongoing global pandemic, you are prevailing as champions who are acting with care, compassion, and courage. 


  • First, take the WCWI Courage Assessment to help you identify which category of courage you lean into as a champion of employee wellbeing.
  • Next, you’ll complete WCWI’s Leaderboard Application below in reflection of how you prevailed as a champion of employee wellbeing.
  • WCWI's Leaderboard submissions are due by Thursday, August 27.
  • All submissions will be reviewed in late August 2020 by a committee comprised of select WCWI staff and Board of Directors. Four final Champions will be selected for WCWI's 2020 Leaderboard.
