Costa Mesa – Vanguard University’s acclaimed Global Center for Women and Justice is now taking nominations for its first-ever Diamond Award. The award will honor individuals or organizations whose activities and commitment promote justice and dignity for women and children in Orange County.
The inaugural Diamond Award will be presented by The Global Center for Women & Justice at Vanguard University, a faith-based organization that exists to advance the global status of women through research, education, advocacy, collaboration and hope. Individuals and organizations (nonprofit and for-profit) are invited to submit entries for individuals, businesses or groups for their efforts to advance justice for women and children through research, education, advocacy, collaboration and hope.
Nominations are encouraged in 3 categories: outstanding corporation or business, outstanding individual, and outstanding youth or youth group.
“Justice issues around human trafficking, violence against women, and child exploitation are complex and require innovative approaches to make a lasting difference in the lives of the most vulnerable,” explains Sandra Morgan, RN, PhD (c), director of the Global Center for Women and Justice. Morgan says, “We chose a diamond for this award because it is the perfect image to represent the many-faceted efforts required to make a difference!”
The selection process will take place in June and July, as a judge’s panel comprised of business and community leaders, philanthropists, law enforcement, and Vanguard University faculty will evaluate the top nominees. The Global Center for Women and Justice will announce the Diamond Award winner at the annual More Priceless Than Diamonds luncheon at the Balboa Bay Club on September 13, 2014.
