Nominate staff, managers, supervisors for three awards

High Five logo

Nominations are open through June 30 for the President’s Award for Innovation in Diversity and Inclusion, and the employee excellence awards for individuals and managers. Recipients will receive a monetary award, and all nominees will be invited to a luncheon with President Martha E. Pollack and Mary Opperman, vice president and chief human resources officer, in the fall.

Nomination criteria are broad and the process is brief – only 3 to 4 questions – and can be submitted without sharing the nominator’s name with the nominee. The awards committee would like to hear about what makes this person stand out: how the nominee is highly skilled in their work or area of expertise; respectful and supportive of colleagues or employees; looks for opportunities for growth personally and within their organization; or supports diversity or improved engagement and opportunities for diverse staff. Nominations are online for the following awards:

·      The President’s Award for Innovation in Diversity and Inclusion

·      Individual Excellence Award

·      Management Excellence Award

An additional winner will also be chosen for the President’s “Far Above the Cayuga Waters” Award from the individual and management award nominees.
