The 2019 AWWA Diversity Award recognizes an individual, group, or organization that has created, promoted, and maintained diversity by establishing an environment that recognizes, encourages, and effectively utilizes each individual's talents. Award winners are recognized at ACE at the Opening General Sessions; are provided an opportunity to speak about their program during a session at ACE, and submit an article to the AWWA Journal as well.
AWWA recognizes the role of diversity as being essential to the growth, structure, and continued success of any organization. Diversity should be an inherent trait of any organization and is manifest in the mosaic of people who bring a variety of backgrounds, perspectives, values, and beliefs as assets to a group or organization in which they interact. The Diversity Award is not given to an individual, group, or organization on the basis of who they are, but because of their achievements and accomplishments.
The AWWA is seeking nominations and welcomes assistance with identifying candidates for this award.
Nominations for the 2019 Diversity Award are due October 1st, 2018. More information and a nomination form can be found on the AWWA Awards webpage.
