Concordia University Texas announced the winners of its Annual Ethics in Business & Community Awards this week.
Prizes were awarded in five categories in addition to the Lifetime Achievement Award, which was presented to Regina Rogoff from the People’s Community Clinic.
“The Ethics in Business & Community awards program is truly an exceptional educational experience,” Dean of the College of Business Lynette Gillis said. “Our students have the opportunity to witness firsthand a community that comes together to support and celebrate ethical business practices of honesty, fairness, respect, social justice and sustainability.”
Nominations were made by community members through the website, RecognizeGood.org, these were later finalized by students of the business school and the winners were then selected by a committee consisting of business and community leaders.
The prize for large businesses was granted to 3M, the award for medium businesses was awarded to Radiation Detection Co., and the small business award was granted to Chasse Consulting.
Prizes were also awarded to the Ronald McDonald House Charities of Central Texas and Brett Cenkus.
RecognizeGood is a nonprofit organization that focuses on recognizing community, charity and volunteer service in Austin. The announcement states that the proceeds from this event was awarded to the Samaritan Center, a nonprofit counseling center that helps prevent and treat abuse and to support life skill development.
