The Anthem Awards, presented by The Webby Awards, recognise the purpose-driven work of individuals, businesses, and organisations across the world.

For 20 years, they’ve been recognising projects and campaigns that drive global change. And each year, they set a new standard for work that motivates others to make a difference.

There are seven categories within The Anthem Awards: Diversity, Equity & Inclusion; Education, Art & Culture; Health; Human & Civil Rights; Humanitarian Action & Services; Responsible Technology;  and Sustainability, Environment & Climate. 

DEPT®’s Global Head of Impact, Pooja Dindigal, shares, “The Anthem Awards serve as validation that we’re equipped to meet the demands of a rapidly-changing world and evolve to produce more sustainable work. Awards that we’ve won span across our core competencies, proving that there really is great work to be done whether you’re an engineer, a marketer, or a creative.”
