The annual IBM Volunteer Excellence Award is the highest form of global recognition given to IBM volunteers. For 2018, fifteen teams and individuals from around the world have been honored by IBM Chairman and CEO Ginni Rometty for their contributions. The stories are an inspiration to others and can serve as models of success that other volunteers can follow.
Individual award winners will be featured on IBM Volunteers each month.
