Colorado Companies Uniting Against Racism
Last month we announced a CEO pledge established by four local companies, Craig Hospital, GroundFloor Media | CenterTable, IMA Financial and JLL, to take action against racism.
Organizations that take the pledge will commit to listening, learning and leading more effectively to combat racism. Since the launch, 79 CEOs have taken the pledge for their organizations and community organizations have signed on as well.
New Pledge Signers:
The Civic 50 Colorado
Gain recognition for your community engagement programs.
Closing on Aug. 31 at midnight, the Civic 50 Colorado assessment
honors the top 50 most community-minded companies in Colorado based on their community engagement programs in the state.
Companies with 15+ employees in Colorado are eligible to apply. Scoring and awards are based on the number of employees (small 15-99, mid-size 100-499 and large 500+), with companies measured within their peer groups. It is not expected that companies will be engaged in all the activities included in the survey.
