Do you know a researcher – client- or supplier-side – who selflessly gives of their time and talent to make the world a better place? This award is designed to recognize that person!
The MREF Everyday Hero award is given to a researcher who is making a difference in or outside of their community but who may not be getting the accolades they deserve. This individual is impacting their world through efforts such as:
Volunteering a significant amount of time/resources
Volunteering at a worthy non-profit
Doing the behind-the-scenes work an organization depends on
Leading and encouraging others to give back through volunteering or other efforts
Individuals must be currently employed by a market research firm or in the market research department of a corporation. Volunteer efforts need to be individual, not part of the nominee's professional (paid) philanthropic activity.
Self nominations are accepted. Previous winners of the Marketing Research and Insight Excellence Award MREF Everyday Hero category are not eligible.

Winners will be announced at The Marketing Research and Insight Excellence Awards – Powered by Quirk’s, taking place on November 9, 2020 at The Edison Ballroom in New York City. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, in 2020 we are NOT requiring finalists to attend the award ceremony and accept the award in person. We will continue to monitor guidelines and travel advice from the CDC and the WHO and, if the gala is able to take place, finalists will receive a single complimentary gala ticket (a $400 value) (nominee can designate someone to attend in their place). In the event an in-person gala cannot take place, finalists will be provided with information regarding a virtual awards ceremony.
