Do you know of a business, nonprofit or governmental agency that truly embodies ethical leadership?

You should enter them into the Utah Ethical Leadership Awards competition, sponsored by the Community Foundation of Utah, Daniels Fund and the Daniels Fund Ethics Initiative at the Eccles School.

“Our collective goal is to recognize leadership in Utah businesses, non-profit organizations and government entities that embody best practices in ethical behaviors,” competition leaders said.

Any business, government entity, or nonprofit in those sectors with ethical standards is encouraged to apply by the July 15 deadline. Click here for more information and to apply for the award.

One organization from each sector will be recognized. A specific honor, the Bill Daniels Ethical Leadership Award, will go to the winner of the business category. The three awards will be given at a Sept. 11 awards breakfast, based on the criteria discussed in this questionnaire.
