Foundations Health & Wholeness, Inc., in partnership with founding sponsors Green Bay Packaging and the George Kress Foundation, has announced Greater Green Bay Habitat for Humanity as a finalist for their 2019 Ethics Award in the nonprofit category.
This award celebrates ethical leaders in the Green Bay community, recognizes the important connection between good ethics and mental wellness, and helps neighbors in need heal and thrive.
Each year, Foundations Health & Wholeness presents the Ethics in Business Awards in four categories: business, nonprofit, individual, and youth.
This year, Foundations received 69 nominations across the four categories. Finalists were determined by the Selection Committee (a group of local business and civic leaders) using criteria from the ten Universal Ethical Principles.
The next step for the finalists is to be interviewed by an independent research team, chaired by Dr. John Stoll, University of Wisconsin-Green Bay (UWGB) professor of public and environmental affairs. In addition to interviewing the finalists, Dr. Stoll’s team of UWGB students will speak with references and conduct other research over the summer.
The research team will provide their findings to the Selection Committee, who will then determine the final recipient in each of the four categories. The 12th Annual Ethics in Business Awards luncheon will be held Thursday, November 7, 2019 at the KI Convention Center.
Finalists in the business category are Fox Communities Credit Union and Ryan Funeral Home. The nonprofit finalists are ADRC/Grounded Café, Greater Green Bay Habitat for Humanity, Green Bay Public School District, and Unity Hospice. Individual finalists are Kate Burgess, Tana Koss, Steven Meyer, and Laura Mossakowski. Youth finalists are Emily Baynes, Jimena Sanchez Hernandez, and Raquel Quevedo Vasquez.
