Ken Heath Award

The STA Women in Finance Committee will host its 3rd Annual Evening of Recognition & Education and presentation of the 2019 Ken Heath Award, which recognizes those men who have made a notable and genuine contribution to the advancement of women in finance. Recipients will have achieved excellence in both professional and personal settings.

Why recognize men? STA WIF believes that a successful diversity strategy is a culture shift within the entire organization, and corporations that engage men in their gender diversity strategies achieve meaningful results.

Excellence in Journalism Award

Recognizing those individuals who display high standards of professionalism, integrity and quality in their craft consistent with the founding principle of STA, dictum meum pactum, My word is my bond. This year’s inaugural Excellence in Journalism Award focuses on Beat Reporting.
