Awards were presented on Tuesday, May 9, at Embassy Suites Omaha in La Vista with Dr. Jeffrey Gold, Chancellor of UNO and the University of Nebraska Medical Center, receiving the award on UNO's behalf.
The awards honor "the innovators, the givers and the leaders" of Omaha "and their impact on our community."
The announcement by the Greater Omaha Chamber of Commerce states:
"They ignore traditional models and forge new paths, embodied by a ‘no coasting’ spirit, undeterred by the prospect of failure because they know innovation and success are often born from failure.
They promote teamwork and collaboration, instilling in their organizations a need to serve others and significantly impact the community’s health and well-being.
They empower, inspiring their employees to achieve their highest potential while remaining true to their mission and values."
