The 2014 SFU Nancy McKinstry Awards for Leadership in Diversity is issuing a call for nominations for the Corporate Diversity Award. The award recognizes a company that excels in the area of diversity, with nominations open to all companies with operations in British Columbia.

The winner of the Corporate Diversity Award will be announced at the awards breakfast on Wednesday, September 17, 2014. Nominations and finalists will be confidentially held and resubmitted with future nominations for a period of two years.

This year, applications are encouraged from small to medium-sized companies who have set themselves apart with their own unique diversity programs. These applications may qualify for an Exemplary Initiative Diversity Award.

Nominees will be measured against the nomination criteria by the Awards Selection Committee, appointed by the University. Nominees are encouraged to provide examples of their accomplishments or Key Performance Indicators for the Objectives listed in the nomination criteria.

Senior management from the winning organization will be provided with an opportunity to speak about their successes at the awards breakfast, where a graduate student entrance award designed to support the diversity and efforts of the SFU Beedie School of Business will also be awarded. Any proceeds from the event are directed to the Nancy McKinstry Endowment that supports this award.

Deadline: The nomination deadline is Friday, July 18, 2014.
