Impact Awards

Portrait of a woman, centered in frame, who is wearing a light blue long-sleeved outfit and a dark blue hair covering. She is smiling and her hands are raised to shift her hair covering.

All around the world, no matter where we live, no matter the challenges and triumphs we face every day, no matter our backgrounds or experiences, there is one that connects us all – our heartbeat. At the 2023 Impact Awards, we celebrated our drumbeat of life, creating excitement, shared experiences, and an unforgettable night.

Check out some of our favorite moments from the 2023 awards in the video above.
