The Smithsonian National Museum of African American History and Culture

Award Category: “Diversity & Inclusion Websites & Mobile Sites”

Talking About Race

Talking about race, although hard, is necessary. To provide tools and guidance to empower people’s journeys and inspire conversation about race, the Smithsonian National Museum of African American History and Culture (NMAAHC) developed “Talking About Race.” The website helps visitors tackle personal questions of reflection around racial awareness, perspective, and experience. 

The Natural Resources Defense Council

Award Category: “Sustainability & Environment Websites & Mobile Sites”

Fighting Polluters Since 1970

To mark its anniversary, the Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC) launched an immersive storytelling experience featuring powerful stories and moments from the last 50 years. The anniversary site allows visitors to explore NRDC’s impact stories in multiple ways, from experiencing the full chronological storyline with a smooth scrolling experience to using the menu to jump from particular areas of the timeline to another.

Congratulations again to all of our colleagues at NMAAHC and NRDC on these well-deserved nominations, as well as all the team members at Forum One who supported these two projects from inception to launch.
