The ERG & Council Honors Award™ is the premiere annual national award that recognizes, honors and celebrates the outstanding contributions and achievements of ERGs and Diversity Councils. These groups lead the diversity and inclusion process within their organizations and demonstrate results in their workforce, workplace and marketplace.
Recipients of the award set the standards of excellence for ERGs and Diversity Councils in the U.S. The TOP 25 award recipients will receive their awards at the 6th Annual ERG & Council Honors Award™ Dinner & Ceremony during the third annual 2014 ERG & Council Conference in Washington D.C. on October 15, 2014.
In its sixth year, the ERG & Council Honors Award™ was established in 2008 by the Association of ERGs & Councils a practice group of diversity and inclusion consulting and training firm PRISM International, Inc. Linda Stokes, President and CEO of PRISM, says, "Our firm assisted organizations with their diversity and inclusion initiatives. We recognized the important contributions and impact that ERGs and Diversity Councils had on their organizations; yet, for all their great efforts there was little national recognition. We wanted to change that."
PRISM created a specialized practice - the Association of ERGS & Councils – to be the premier resource for ERG and Diversity Council professionals.
Philip Berry, Executive Director of the Association of ERGs & Councils says,"Our intent is to enable ERGs and Diversity Councils to use this application as a way to learn what they are doing well and how they can continue to improve their impact."
