2018 Utah Business Diversity Award Nominations Are Now Open

Utah Diversity Connections (UDC) and Utah SHRM are excited to announce that nominations are now being accepted for the 2018 Utah Business Diversity Award.

The Utah Business Diversity Award, established in 2011, is co-sponsored by UDC and Utah SHRM State Council and recognizes Utah employers who are passionate and dedicated to supporting and promoting inclusion and diversity in their organization and community. Some of our past award recipients include companies such as Ballard Spahr, Arches Health Plan, Enterprise Holdings, First Utah Bank, American Express, and JCPenney.

The Business Diversity Award was established in 2011 in an effort to recognize businesses in Utah who embrace diversity as a fundamental element of their organization. All Utah employers are encouraged to submit a nomination. The award categories, selection criteria and nomination process are outlined below. Please note that nominations must be submitted no later than June 1, 2018.

Categories of Awards

  • Small Companies – under 100 employees
  • Mid-Size Companies – from 101 to 500 employees in Utah
  • Large Companies – more than 500 employees in Utah

Employers will be recognized and receive the awards during the 2018 Utah SHRM Crossroads Conference in September.

Selection Criteria

The 2018 Utah Business Diversity Award recognizes employers who are passionate and dedicated to recognizing and promoting differences in their organization and their community. Diversity can be identified as differences in race, gender, physical abilities, religious beliefs, age, education, sexual orientation and other perceived differences. The company should also have strong policies, programs, and a culture that promotes diversity within the organization and fosters a more inclusive and equitable work environment.

Nomination Process

If your organization deserves to be recognized for their diversity efforts, please visit the Utah SHRM website at, or the UDC website at to review more information on previous employers, the eligibility guidelines, and complete the nomination process.
