2019 Ethics Award Finalists
August 29, 2019
Foundations Health & Wholeness, Inc., in partnership with founding sponsors Green Bay Packaging and the George Kress Foundation, is pleased to announce the finalists for their 12th Annual Ethics Awards in four categories:
Business: Fox Communities Credit Union and Ryan Funeral Home
Nonprofit: ADRC/Grounded Café, Greater Green Bay Habitat for Humanity, Green Bay Public School District, and Unity Hospice
Individual: Kate Burgess, Tana Koss, Steven Meyer, and Laura Mossakowski
Youth: Emily Baynes, Jimena Sanchez Hernandez, and Raquel Quevedo Vasquez
Foundations received 69 nominations across the 4 categories. Finalists were determined by independent Selection Committee, comprised of local business and civic leaders, using criteria based on the ten Universal Ethical Principles.
Dr. Grant Rozeboom, Assistant Professor of Business Administration-Ethics and Philosophy at St. Norbert College and co-chair of the Selection Committee, addressed the finalists at a breakfast last week. He explained what the committee was looking for when reviewing the nominations, “It is how you think, how your organizations operate, and how you approach others in the community.” He went on to clarify the difference between doing something good and behaving ethically, “It’s not just about doing good, it’s about the thoughtful way you’re looking for the next important need that needs to be addressed. It’s looking for those who have been excluded and need to be brought in, or the ways we can make our community more welcoming and a better place to live.”
The 12th Annual Ethics in Business Awards luncheon will be held Thursday, November 7, 2019, at the KI Convention Center. Click HERE for more information on the event.
