Do you know any DU employees with an exemplary commitment to promoting diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI)? Nominate them for the 2020 Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Champion Award.

Nominators should provide concrete examples of how an employee has gone above and beyond to uphold DU’s value of respect and inclusion. Those who are nominated should also have made a significant, positive impact on the DU and/or broader community as demonstrated by their work to combat bias, oppression, discrimination and other matters related to social justice.

Specifically, DEI Champion awardees:

  • Use a comprehensive lens of diversity, equity and inclusion to inform their leadership approach.   
  • Demonstrate a strong commitment to advancing their own awareness, knowledge and skills related to diversity, equity and inclusion.
  • Serve as fierce advocates for equitable and inclusive policies and practices within their department, the DU campus and/or the broader community.
  • Promote innovative DEI approaches to enhance the variety of student, staff, and faculty experiences at DU.

Nominations are open to all faculty, staff, adjuncts and coaches. Employees with assigned roles and responsibilities tied to the award criteria are eligible, if their actions go beyond the requirements in their job description.

You may nominate multiple candidates for the award. If you submit a nomination, your name will be entered into the drawing for a DU Bookstore gift certificate.

Submit a nomination by May 15, 2020.
