What is a GRIT Award?
A GRIT award is for the unsung leader who is down in the trenches getting the job done regardless of what recognition may come their way.
The furthest thing from a ceremonial award, the GRIT awards recognize leaders who boldly step up to the occasion, whatever it may be. It’s for women that lead, but it’s also for men who recognize the value of women and are advocates for their progress in energy.
