The marquee event at the inaugural 6 Degrees, the Adrienne Clarkson Prize for Global Citizenship is to be awarded annually to a leader whose life has demonstrated a steadfast commitment to the ideals of belonging and inclusion. Through words, actions and results, this individual has encouraged thought and dialogue, approaches and strategies that strive to remove barriers, change attitudes, and reinforce the principles of tolerance and respect.
