DIALOG Edmonton Studio Nominated for 2024 Awards of Distinction in Big Idea category by United Way of the Alberta Capital Region

March 7, 2024

We’re delighted to share that our DIALOG Edmonton studio has been nominated for the 2024 ‘Awards of Distinction’ in the Big Idea category by the United Way of the Alberta Capital Region.

The nomination – which recognizes an organization or individual for their innovative contributions to United Way’s purpose to build a strong and vibrant community where no one is left behind – stems from a month-long workplace campaign that we held in November 2023.

The campaign successfully brought together employees for a series of social events including clothing drives, raffle draws, silent auctions, bake sales, and chili cook-offs, raising a total of $15,800 to support education, income stability, and health initiatives for the United Way of the Alberta Capital Region.

At DIALOG, we not only design for the well-being of our communities and the environment; we take pride in creating long-lasting impact on the lives of those within our community by driving positive social change through our volunteering and advocacy efforts.

We are honoured to stand alongside 11 other nominees in the Big Ideas category and look forward to the United Way’s annual Red Tie Gala on Thursday, March 14, 2024, where we will celebrate all nominees and anticipate the announcement of the award recipients.
