In order to bring in a wide range of expertise and connections to ESN, the head judges’ panel is selected based on a call for panellists. Panellists are selected based on their strong experience in social service management, planning, funding, provision and research.
The panel composition also aims to reflect the diversity of the ESN community by achieving a balance of:
  • Countries
  • Areas of social service
  • Sectors
  • Levels of government and delivery
  • Seniority and expertise of the theme
