Virginia Hart Special Recognition Award​​


​Join us in honoring the 37th Annual Virginia Hart Special Recognition Award winner, in conjunction with the State Council on Affirmative Action's video montage of all past Diversity​ Award Winners.

The Virginia Hart award’s emphasis is on recognizing “unsung heroines” in state service, thus providing encouragement and recognition to all women in state government. The award seeks to recognize women who share the following qualities: esteem from peers; acceptance of responsibility beyond the limits of the nominee’s job description; sustained, extraordinary achievement of assigned tasks; performance recognition from clients; community service; self-improvement; and overcoming hardships ​to performance.​
