SANFORD, Fla., Feb. 18, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- PRISM International, Inc. announced today the opening of the 2014 ERG & Council Honors Award™  Application process.   This is the sixth year for this annual national award that recognizes, honors and celebrates the outstanding contributions and achievements of ERGs and Diversity Councils.  The TOP 25 award recipients set the standards of excellence for ERGs and Diversity Councils and will be recognized, honored and celebrated at a dinner ceremony during the 2014 ERG & Council Conference in Alexandria, VA on October 15, 2014.

The ERG & Council Honors Award™ was established in 2008 by the Association of ERGs & Councils, a practice group of diversity and inclusion consulting and training firm PRISM International, Inc.  Linda Stokes, President and CEO of PRISM, says, "For years we've assisted organizations with their diversity and inclusion initiatives. We recognized the important contributions and that  impact that ERGs and Diversity Councils had on their organizations; yet, for all their great efforts there was  little national recognition. We wanted to change that."   Ken Barrett, Chief Diversity Officer at GM says, "It's a great opportunity to be able to recognize all those different companies with ERGs and Councils out there that are really doing great stuff."  

The application process is free. ERGs and Councils complete and submit an online application that evaluates their contributions and achievements in four focus areas.  Tina Hallenbeck, Diversity Manager at FedEx Freight says, " It challenges us...by filling out the application and really looking at what we're doing every year.  It makes us evaluate what we're doing and helps us get better."    Philip Berry, Executive Director of the Association of ERGs & Councils says, "Our intent is to enable  ERGs and Diversity Councils to use this application as a way to learn what they are doing well and how they can continue to improve their impact." 

Every applicant will receive their results in their complimentary Application Summary Report that provides feedback and information that will enhance their performance and increase their value to the organization they serve.
