How It Works
This program honors companies and individuals in New Mexico that demonstrate a strong commitment to the highest level of ethical business practices in daily operations, management and personal philosophies and in their response to crises and challenges.
A company or individual may be nominated by a customer, client, employee, consultant, vendor or private citizen who is impressed with the company’s or an individual’s demonstration of ethical practices.
Here is what you need to know:
- Please be sure to read and follow the instructions carefully.
- Before you submit a nomination, you should notify that individual or company in advance as it will require some work on the part of the nominees, as discussed further below.
- After the nomination period closes on Aug. 1, 2024, all nominees will be notified of their nomination. In addition, each nominee will be asked to provide the names of individuals who may serve as references.
The completed nominations will be reviewed and vetted by the New Mexico Ethics in Business Awards Screening Committee.
A group of no more than 30 finalists will go through an additional process led by students in the Fall 2023 Business Ethics courses at CNM.
Finalists should expect 3–4 phone and/or in-person meetings with students that will last 1–2 hours each and will take place September through November 2023.
As a nominator, please be prepared to provide contact information for 3–5 stakeholders (i.e. customers, community partners, employees, competitors, etc., as applicable) for possible further student contact and interviews.
