Each year Elevate Rochester proudly sponsors the ETHIE Awards, which celebrates organizations in the Rochester region that exemplify high ethical standards.
Since 2003, more than 100 organizations have applied for the Award, leading to 60 finalists and 33 ETHIE Award recipients. We are pleased that your organization has decided to apply this year.
We’ve designed the application to help you review, reflect upon, and describe the ethical standards, policies, and practices in your organization. While the process may seem a bit daunting at first, we believe it has value. Many past applicants have used the application as an assessment tool in order to improve their ethics program and organizational culture.
In addition to answering the questions and providing examples in each of the four sections, we ask that all applicants include any applicable supporting documentation (e.g., code of ethics, mission statement, newsletter, policy statements, etc.) that might assist the judges in reviewing your application.
The Elevate Rochester Board and the Awards Committee wish you the best of luck in what we hope will be an exciting and illuminating process!
If you have any questions about the application, please don’t hesitate to contact:
