Is your company doing great things to advance diversity and inclusion?
The National Restaurant Association is calling on people across the country to apply or nominate someone for the Faces of Diversity awards (fyi, the application deadline has been extended to Mon., Feb. 1...apply here). Winners receive expense-paid trips to Washington, D.C., for the awards ceremony during the Association’s April Public Affairs Conference.
The Faces of Diversity awards program, created by the National Restaurant Association in partnership with PepsiCo Foodservice (exhibiting again at NRA Show 2010), celebrates the restaurant industry’s successes and inspires restaurateurs to embrace inclusion and expand diversity efforts. The American Dream Award honors individuals from diverse backgrounds who, through hard work and determination, have realized the American dream. The Inspiration Award honors restaurant companies that have exhibited leadership and vision as an advocate of diversity and inclusion.
The 2009 Faces of Diversity Awards winners included:
