We are so grateful that we had the opportunity to celebrate each other as we near the end of what has been a very difficult year. Heartfelt appreciation to everyone who nominated a colleague. The nominations are the bedrock and foundation of our celebration. These acknowledgements and gratitudes are essential for setting the tone of our work and supporting each other.


The Award Ceremony is a way to celebrate the work that everyone does. We celebrate this work by calling attention to some specific individuals, but we want to be clear that these people are examples and representatives of everyone, and we are celebrating everyone.
