RecognizeGood is proud to announce the finalists for the 15th Annual Ethics in Business & Community Awards. Finalists were notified Thursday, March 2 at an event hosted at Concordia University Texas. This prestigious award recognizes the best in Central Texas leadership. Businesses, nonprofits and individuals in five categories have been nominated by the community for their exemplary ethical leadership, outstanding ethical practices and excellent business principles including respect, fairness, honesty, justice, and sustainability.
Nominations were solicited from May 2016 through January 2017. The nominees were vetted by the students of the College of Business at Concordia University Texas. Students reviewed and researched the initial nominees and narrowed this list down to 15 finalists (three in each category). Next, the students will begin a rigorous, in-depth review of each finalist and present their findings to an independent selection committee of business and community leaders to vote on the final award recipients. The selection committee is led by Dr. Lynette Gillis, Dean of the College of Business at Concordia University Texas.
“The Ethics in Business & Community awards program is truly an exceptional educational experience,” Gillis said, praising the program and its impact on her students. “Our students have the opportunity to witness firsthand a community that comes together to support and celebrate the ethical business practices of honesty, fairness, respect, social justice, and sustainability.”
Concordia has been awarded the Tom & Reina Wiatt Scholarship of $15,000 for their involvement with the research and selection process of selecting the finalists.
