Win & Winnow earns a win in the DE&I category of the Remote Excellence Awards

Win & Winnow has been named highly commended in the first-ever Remote Excellence Awards, in the Excellence in DE&I category. The awards, presented by Remote, recognize companies that have demonstrated exceptional commitment, innovation, and enthusiasm in navigating the challenges and opportunities presented by remote work. 

About the Remote Excellence Awards

The awards celebrate Win & Winnow’s efforts driving success in the realm of remote work and distributed teams and provide a roadmap of effective strategies and practices for other businesses to follow. The winners across 10 categories were selected through a rigorous evaluation process by a panel of judges, comprising Remote’s leaders and a panel of influential industry figures, considering factors such as employee engagement, impact on employee engagement and productivity, and technology adoption.

“Win & Winnow’s achievement in the Remote Excellence Awards highlights the dedication and hard work of its leaders and teams in succeeding in the new world of work,” said Job van der Voort, CEO, and Co-founder of Remote. “Organizations like these have become the benchmark, through their commitment to excellence and their ability to thrive, paving a way forward for other organizations to confidently pursue their own remote work endeavors.”

Win & Winnow’s Journey on Diversity, Equity & Inclusion

Win & Winnow has always been guided by the will to transform people’s lives. Our founder and CEO, Cecilia Calónico, embarked on this journey as a young freelance translator with somewhat of a business vision and the conviction that a positive impact should be made whenever a chance came across. This translated into consciously collaborating with clients that improved health worldwide, becoming a carbon-neutral company that joined forces with other environmentally responsible institutions, and fostering a work culture that celebrates diversity and innovation.

At the core of Win & Winnow lies a genuine commitment to Diversity, Equity & Inclusion. In the past years, we took every opportunity to learn and promote women’s empowerment, both within our organization and beyond, and the results of our action plans were awarded by UN Women in 2019, 2020, and 2021. But our commitment extends beyond gender equality. We expanded our definition of diversity to shape and carry out more inclusive programs and practices. Our innovative education programs have broken down barriers through remote accessibility, offering professional development opportunities, regardless of economic and geographical constraints. Also, combining supplier diversity with environmental parameters led to the implementation of our Supplier Diversity & Sustainability Program. We make sure to take care of our team as well, through equitable salaries, work-life balance, and access to well-being resources.

Today, Cecilia leads a thriving company, certified as a B Corporation, a Women-Owned Business and a member of the Global Compact. Such acknowledgments showcase our ongoing dedication to sustainable practices. But our story continues beyond there. Winning the Excellence in DE&I Award challenges us to broaden our horizons, keep learning, and become a better company for the world.
