“Each year, we highlight how organizations across different industries have achieved their goals through their integration of innovative technologies into their communications and marketing strategies,” said Jen McClure, Principal Distinguished Fellow at The Conference Board’s Marketing & Communications Center, and Chair of the Center’s awards program. “By showcasing the pioneering work of these organizations, we inspire others to follow in their footsteps so they, too, can reap the benefits.”

An awards dinner gala that celebrates the recipients and their exemplary work will take place in New York on June 26th, in conjunction with The Conference Board's 24th Annual Corporate Communications Conference. In addition to featuring the Excellence in Marketing & Communications Awards recipients, the event will also feature the Fellows Choice Awards recipients. This year’s Fellows Choice Awards focus on organizations that are leading the way in balancing innovation with ethics in digital marketing, communications, and data privacy. Selected by a group of Senior Fellows at The Conference Board, the 2019 Fellows Choice Awards honorees are:


  • Procter & Gamble

Nonprofit / Academic

  • The Mayo Clinic


  • The New York Times

"Data privacy and security are among the most pressing issues facing organizations and society today. Balancing the needs of stakeholders – shareholders, employees, communities, and consumers – with the imperatives of regulation, whether passed or proposed, presents a significant challenge," said Susan Getgood, Senior Fellow at The Conference Board’s Marketing & Communications Center. "As our Fellows continue focusing on the importance of data privacy compliance and the larger issue of digital ethics, we're delighted to honor those who are leading the way in identifying innovative solutions."

The awards event will also include a panel discussion around innovation, regulation, and digital ethics. Moderated by Susan Getgood, it will feature panelists from the organizations that are the recipients of this year’s Fellows Choice Awards. Event registration is available here.
