Award Background 

In its ninth 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.

"ERGs and Diversity Councils are vital links for improving organizational results," said Linda Stokes, President & CEO of PRISM. "They need opportunities to improve and grow by learning and sharing best practices, gaining important insights, knowledge and skills to increase their impact and effectiveness. They also need to be recognized and rewarded for the contribution and results. This is the purpose behind the annual Conference and Honors Award," concluded Stokes.

Fernando Serpa, Executive Director of the Association of ERGs & Councils remarked,"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."
