Welcome and instructions

Thank you submitting your initiative/program for consideration for the HBA ACE Award.

The new online form was designed to assist companies in compiling the information about their initiative/program for review by the independent judging panel. The 5 criteria for assessment are:

·         Business performance
·         Execution
·         Stewardship
·         Sustainability
·         Measurable results

The judges are looking for validation in the measurable results section that your initiative/program is having the intended outcomes, so please ensure you provide as much qualitative and quantitative data as possible. These submissions are limited to only key staff and the independent judging panel.

If you have a program designed to advance Women of Color that you’d like to submit to increase the body of knowledge about this area of significant disparity, but you don’t think that it is at a level of success that could win the ACE award, PLEASE submit! Simply complete the submission form to the best of your ability with the information you have at this point in time. By us starting to share what we are working on as an industry, the HBA’s goal is to highlight your efforts and drive more work in this important area.

You may save your work as you go until you hit the final submit button.

Submissions will be accepted until July 15 . If you have questions, please contact ACE@HBAnet.org.

There is an award administration fees of USD $500 for HBA corporate partners and $1,000 for non-corporate partners.

This form can be used if you are responding to our call to share what you're doing in your organization to drive improvement for Woman of Color. There is no admin fee for these submissions, as these won't be part of the judging process. 

Thank you for your contribution to advancing gender parity!
