Award Criteria



Purpose of the Award: Recognize an individual, group, or organization that has created, promoted, and maintained diversity and inclusion by establishing an environment that recognizes, encourages, and effectively utilizes each individual's talents.

CTAWWA recognizes the role of diversity and inclusion as being essential to the growth, structure, and continued success of any organization.

c. Promotion and fostering of diversity programs such as mentoring, support networks, internship programs, co-op programs, work study, diversity training, or other opportunities.

d. Development of management accountability/tracking methods as means of quantifying the impact of the efforts to increase and maintain diversity.
