The Diversity Workforce Coalition (DWC) is accepting applications for its Annual Workplace Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Award, which recognizes outstanding efforts of organizations that actively engage in promoting and implementing diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) in the workplace.
All organizations across the corporate, government, community, and not-for-profit sectors are eligible to apply.
DWC Board President Monica Zulauf said the Selection Committee is looking forward to reviewing this year’s submissions. “I am always amazed by how the quality of applications gets stronger and stronger each year,” said Zulauf. “Many applicants have told us that simply participating in the process is a valuable experience because it allows them to share best practices, learn from each other, and continue to evolve into more diverse and inclusive organizations, which, in turn, helps achieve broader societal goals.”
The Selection Committee awarded Port City Pretzels the 2022 DEI Award for exhibiting exemplary leadership in—and commitment to—advancing and advocating for DEI in its workplace and community. Finalists also named for their considerable achievements in DEI were Mascoma Bank and Merchants Fleet.
Applications for this year’s award program will be accepted from now until to February 15, 2023. Candidates will be selected for a virtual interview and site visit, conducted by Selection Committee representatives, with the final winner announced at the DWC’s annual DEI conference, which will take place at Southern NH University in Manchester on March 16, 2022.
