About Us

This Can Happen Awards have been launched to celebrate and recognise companies and individuals who have shown excellence in their approach towards positive mental health for their employees and colleagues.

This Can Happen Awards are brought to you by the team who launched This Can Happen 2018 – THE workplace mental health event. The event attracted over 750 delegates from across 150+ companies and was honoured to have HRH the Duke of Cambridge attending the event and taking part in a panel discussion.

The natural progression was to continue to support workplaces in their journey to support their employees mental health and we were keen to recognise and reward those successfully implementing positive change.

We are delighted to announce that Allen & Overy are the title sponsor of our Awards.

“Allen & Overy are delighted and proud to be the title sponsor for the This Can Happen Awards 2020. In my role as Jury Chair last year I saw the excellent work that organisations are doing and it is evident that there is an overwhelming positive impact that winning one of these Awards has on both individuals and companies alike. We are looking forward to judging the entries and hosting this year’s awards reception.”   Toni Graves, Global Head of Reward and Wellbeing, Allen & Overy
