The Combined Rotary Clubs of Pensacola believe there are exemplary persons in our community who exhibit outstanding ethical practices. We need your help in identifying those persons who should be given community-wide recognition. That is why the Combined Rotary Clubs of Pensacola, along with the University of West Florida College of Business, established an Ethics in Business Award.
This year’s award is the sixteenth annual award and will be presented May 7, 2018. Two awards will be given, one for an individual from an organization with 50 or more employees and one from an organization with 49 or fewer employees.
The Combined Rotary of Pensacola and the College of Business at the University of West Florida are promoting this project because:
1) Community well-being is enhanced by businesses that do well by doing good. Recognizing individuals and institutions encourages those who are doing the right thing in an environment that often disparages idealism.
2) A cooperative venture of this kind builds positive exchanges within the business community and uncovers innovative practices and unsung heroes.
3) The program invites scrutiny, heightening ethical awareness of ones’ own practice.
On the nomination form you’ll find the evaluation criteria. We ask that you attach a one-page description of the nominee’s ethical activities, addressing criterion #1 and one or more additional criteria for the award.
Nominations must be received by March 31, 2018. Please send the completed application to Ed Ranelli, Dean Emeritus, College of Business, University of West Florida, 11000 University Parkway, Pensacola, FL 32514 (or fax to 850-474-2716).
