Established in 2007 by DiversityBusiness, the "Champions of Diversity" award represent individuals who have demonstrated a commitment to solutions in diversity issues on a global and "national" scale. The honorees have made a significant impact on diversity issues in education, procurement, housing and employment. These unsung champions have not waved a diversity flag but rather have quietly made a difference in the lives of people by positively impacting their lives, and improving the economic conditions for their families and communities.
Individuals that demonstrate a commitment to promoting diversity are eligible for nomination for the award, so long as they have not received it within the last five years. C-suite executives that have spear headed diversity initiatives and all levels of corporate management are invited to participate. CEO, CDO, COO, VP HR, etc.
