Duration of Pleiades Awards
The Pleiades Awards last for two calendar years from the 1st of January each year. Holders must re-apply for accreditation at least every two years (or more frequently if they wish). It is the intention of the award committee that all Pleiades Award holders continue to improve and upgrade their accreditation. The award committee will send reminders to all lapsing awardees by 1st June each year before the Award lapses. If awardees fail to re-apply, their award will become invalid effective January 1st of the next year.
Existing Pleiades Award holders must advise the awards committee immediately if they receive a judgment or adverse final order by a court or other tribunal relating to gender discrimination or harassment. This may result in the Award being rescinded with immediate effect. Under such circumstances, the organisation may only reapply after a period of 12 months has elapsed since the Award was rescinded.
