The Forum on Workplace Inclusion Honors USBLN with 2018 Diversity Awards
In 2008, The Forum on Workplace Inclusion created an awards program to recognize individuals or organizations dedicated to raising awareness of diversity and inclusion in the workplace. Since then, The Forum hosts an annual celebration in honor of those that impact change and demonstrate sustained support for advancing equality in the workplace. This year, The Forum on Workplace Inclusion is recognizing USBLN as a recipient of the 2018 Winds of Change Award.
“This award places us among a group of dedicated and distinguished workplace equality advocates. We’re immensely proud to be chosen to receive the 2018 Winds of Change Award,” said Jill Houghton, USBLN’s Executive Director.
