The public is invited to nominate businesses and non-profit organizations for the North Coast Ethics in Business Awards to be held in October of 2021 at the Doubletree Hotel in Rohnert Park. Ethics in Business honors organizations and individuals demonstrating ethical business practice in the workplace, the marketplace, the environment and the community. The awards program is presented by Rotary District 5130. Nominees’ do not have to have a connection to Rotary.
There will be four categories of recognition for Northern California organizations: large, medium, and small business (based on numbers of employees) and non-profit organizations of any size. Award recipients will be recognized for going beyond expected standards in the ethical conduct of their organizations. Nominations can be entered at www.NorthCoastEthics.com.
Organizations receiving recognition will be selected by a blue-ribbon committee of North Coast business leaders with awards presented at the District 5130 Conference luncheon scheduled for October 8 in Rohnert Park at the Doubletree Hotel.
The North Coast Ethics in Business Award is a vision of Rotary District 5130 Governor Doug Johnson. Johnson strongly believes Rotary’s core values are closely aligned with the consistent organizational practice of ethics in business. “As Rotarians, we want to honor businesses that are doing things right and that embody the Rotarian values of public service, fairness, integrity and community spirit,” said Johnson.
The District Conference event will also feature the award of educational scholarships for the 2022 academic year to high school seniors. The deadline for submitting scholarship applications is July 15. Sponsors for the awards and scholarship program are welcome and will receive recognition in marketing materials and during the event.
Rotary District 5130 is comprised of 47 Rotary clubs, six Rotaract clubs, and more than 2700 members in Sonoma, Napa, Mendocino, Lake, Humboldt, and Del Norte counties. More information on Rotary, the Ethics awards and scholarships can be found at www.Rotary5130.org.
