2014 ERG & Council Conference:
Award Purpose & Background
The Only Award Designed Specifically for ERGs and Diversity Councils.
The ERG & Council Honors Award™ is the only annual national award that recognizes honors and celebrates the outstanding contributions and achievements of ERGs and Diversity Councils that lead the diversity and inclusion process in their organizations and demonstrate results in their workforce, workplace and marketplace. Now in its sxith year, recipients of the award set the standards of excellence for ERGs and Diversity Councils in the U.S.
In its sixth year, the ERG & Council Honors Award™ was established by the Association of ERGs & Councils a practice group of diversity and inclusion consulting and training firm PRISM International, Inc., in 2008. Linda H. Stokes, President and CEO of PRISM, says, "Our firm has 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.
