About the Excellence in Management Award

The award honors exemplary managers and supervisors who have led their teams and team members to meaningful accomplishments this past year.

2023 Excellence in Management Award Theme: Everyday Hero: Leading the Path to Excellence

This highlights leaders who demonstrate and encourage mentorship, dignity, respect, and belonging.

Please nominate your managers/supervisors who exemplify the theme and provide detailed examples based on our Principles of Community and Rubric. Below are some examples of the characteristics that exemplify our theme of "Everyday Hero: Leading the Path to Excellence." You may choose to use one or more of the examples below or provide your own specific examples that encompass the theme:

  • Intentionality: manager/supervisor clearly defines goals for team members to strive towards; and creates a culture of inclusion that empowers the team and others to live and work intentionally
  • Raising everyone up (rising tides lifts all boats): manager/supervisor increases the overall level of inclusion and opportunities within an organization that benefits everyone
  • Dignity and respect: manager/supervisor demonstrates dignity and respect to staff, encourages dignity and respect in the workplace
