Hello friends,

First, we want to say that we continue to wish you all the best as we collectively navigate this unprecedented time.  There is so much sadness in the world, but the stories of individuals rising to these extreme challenges provide a glimmer of hope for us all and reminds us of the power of the human spirit.

Since we sent the original Honors Award update in mid-March communicating the delay in the launch of the Honors Award, we have continued conversations with organizations and other key stakeholders. The feedback we have received is that we must go forward and celebrate the inspirational work of ERGs and Diversity Councils through the ERG & Council Conference and Honors Award.   

Over the last 8+ months we have shared with many of you that we were making enhancements to the award and the application process.  We will continue to honor and recognize the great work of ERGs and Councils and recognize other DE&I initiatives that advance the work of building more inclusive and equitable workplaces.  We are excited to announce that on Monday, April 6th, we will launch and open the application for our new Diversity Impact Awards.

New Award Breakdown:
Top 25 ERG Award
Top 10 Enterprise ERG Award
Top 10 Diversity Action Award
Executive Sponsor Award

Later this week we will send additional information including the link to the application, additional information on each of the awards and the enhancements to the application process.  We will also set up informational webinars next week to answer any questions you may have.   

Thank you for your patience as we all find the way through this challenging time. 
 
Kind regards,

Cile Johnson and Lynn Cowart
