Introducing the Prism Award

The PRISM award is an accolade bestowed by the KW Rainbow Network to recognize and honor an individual’s outstanding representation of the LGBTQ+ community in Real Estate.

Recipients of the PRISM Award embody Positivity, Resilience, Inclusivity, Servant-leadership, and Magnanimity (PRISM). Each year Rainbow Network members nominate others based on the following criteria, four individuals are then chosen and honored at our Rainbow Camp event each fall.


Each candidate considered for nomination are evaluated using four criteria:

Fair, Accurate and Inclusive Representations

How has the diversity of their LGBTQ+ community been represented and uplifted by their actions?

Boldness and Originality

How have they broken new ground by leading, growing or exploring initiatives in non-traditional ways? How are they champions for inclusivity, diversity and equality?

Cultural Impact

How has their leadership or initiative impacted an audience who may have not been exposed to LGBTQ+ issues? Do they also embody the W4C2TS? How have they consistently shown a track-record of coming from contribution.
