There was a record increase in applications representing 1,330 ERGs, BRGs, Diversity Councils and their chapters.

The 2017 ERG & Council Honors Award™ is the only annual national award that recognizes and honors the outstanding contributions and achievements of ERGs, BRGs and Diversity Councils. It was established in 2008 by the Association of ERGs & Councils, a practice group of diversity and inclusion consulting and training firm PRISM International, Inc. ERGs, BRGs and Diversity Councils completed and submitted an online application that evaluated their contributions and achievements in four focus areas. There is no cost or obligation to apply. Every applicant will receive their results in their complimentary Application Summary Report that provides feedback and information designed to enhance their performance and increase their value to the organization they serve. Linda Stokes, President and CEO of PRISM, says, “Participants report that completing the application challenges them to look hard and deep at what they are doing by evaluating their efforts and then making adjustments that make them better. Our intent is to enable ERGs, BRGs and Diversity Councils to use this application to learn what they are doing well and how they can continue to increase their impact and effectiveness.”
