The Iowa Job Honor Awards celebrates Iowans who overcome barriers to employment and the employers who hire them and is now accepting nominations for its sixth annual event Oct. 10 in Des Moines.
Previous honorees overcame disability, criminal convictions, immigration challenges and ageism in their struggle for employment.
Top individual honorees will receive cash awards, and winners in both the individual and employer categories will receive engraved crystal awards.
Videos will be produced for each top honoree. Previous honoree videos can be seen on vimeo.com/jobhonors.
The awards are presented as part of the Iowa Society for Human Resource Management annual state conference.
Nominations are due July 31 and can be submitted at JobHonor.org.
