The Minority Affairs Committee is requesting nominations from the Vietnam Veterans of America membership for the VVA National Minority Affairs Committee Diversity Award.
VVA’s Minority Affairs Committee Diversity Award recognizes outstanding achievements by an individual, business, or organization in the promotion of diversity within the veterans’ community. The award represents efforts and achievements that develop a culture and environment in which diversity is valued.
All nominees must have made a significant contribution to the advancement of diversity and to VVA’s mission statement. Contributions may include, but are not limited to, initiatives and programs that advance harmony and respect, and improve social justice, human rights, and cultural awareness.
The committee has had the award since 2005, however only one organization has received the award: the Seminole Nation of Florida.
The award will be presented at the Tucson Leadership Conference.
