These may be challenging times, but there was no room for rancor at NYC’s Yale Club yesterday morning, when Cynopsis celebrated community spirit at the third annual Social Good Awards. From inclusion, anti-bullying, foster parenting and human rights campaigns, to free charging stations, Unicef and get out the vote messages, it was clear the media industry is committed to doing its part – and more. Katie Couric said of National Geographic and CEO, National Geographic Global Networks Courteney Monroe, accepting an Impact Award on behalf of the company, that Nat Geo has “broadened the definition of exploration to go beyond geography, and into ideas.” Taking the stage, Monroe said, “At National Geographic we believe passionately in the power of storytelling to change the world.”

When Debi Mazar introduced Niels Schuurmans, Viacom EVP/CCO for the morning’s second Impact honor, the Younger star said as the mother of two teens, the company’s “Listen” initiative to change the national addiction conversation resonated. In fact, just about everyone’s life is in some way touched by addiction, said Schuurmans, a fact made clear when the idea was first raised: “Cause work doesn’t drive revenue….[but] as this came up, so many hands went up within the organization asking, how can we help.”

The Impact Award to a brand went to Dove for its “Real Beauty” campaign. Brand manager Lisha Perez said the company’s mission was to  “make a woman’s looks a source of confidence, not anxiety, around the world.”

Steve Schiffman, CEO of the Justice Channel, shared that when the network enlisted John Walsh to be part of the network – which airs a 30-second interstitial every hour to get help identifying missing children – “We weren’t just getting John Walsh, we were getting the whole Walsh family.” Walsh’s son Callahan, accepting the Cynopsis Legacy award on his father’s behalf, brought some in the room to tears as he talked of his brother Adam being kidnapped and killed as a little boy, a tragedy that motivated his parents to start a national organization for children’s rights.  “Adam’s song is to continue, and we must continue to do the singing,” said Walsh. The center has solved the cases of over 232,000 missing children to date.
