RIMS ERM | November 2–3, 2023 | Denver

RIMS Global ERM Award of Distinction 2023

The nominations period has closed.

RIMS annually honors leading ERM programs that demonstrate innovative approaches and techniques for managing uncertainty effectively with the aim of creating, preserving or realizing organizational value. Be recognized for ERM excellence and join a global community of leaders by sharing your organization’s approach for managing today’s risk and opportunity landscape with your peers.

Is your ERM program award-worthy?

RIMS is looking for ERM excellence that:

  • Demonstrates ERM innovation in creating and preserving organizational value.
  • Provides measurable, tangible and sustainable results for their organization.
  • Is transferable to other organizations.

RIMS encourages entries that describe new approaches for managing uncertainty effectively, which includes risk and opportunity linked with strategy and performance. For example, if an ERM program you created or championed enabled your organization to survive—and thrive—during COVID or amid a geopolitical risk, we want to know about it. Additionally, you could also demonstrate how your program has reached maturity by referencing the five pillars of the RIMS Risk Maturity Model.

We invite you to describe your ERM program, and highlight how it is enabling leadership to manage an evolving risk and opportunity landscape in achieving the objectives desired by your organization.
