The Unsung Inclusion Hero Award recognizes those who have had a positive influence on a department, unit or organization from behind the scenes with a positive attitude and a willingness to help in whatever capacity necessary and exemplifying a commitment to diversity and inclusion.  We seek candidates who are on the frontlines of the efforts but then take a “behind the scenes” role when it is time for appreciation.
