ABOUT THE AWARD: The Greater Dallas Business Ethics Award (GDBEA) honors Dallas-based companies that demonstrate a firm commitment to ethical business practices in everyday operations, management philosophies and responses to crises or challenges. Now in its 14th year, the GDBEA uses a rigorous process of nomination, entry submission and evaluation.
Dallas-based companies of any size, public or private, may be nominated or may self-nominate for the award. Local program winners may be forwarded for the national awards competition at the discretion of the GDBEA. For details on nomination/entry click here.
Entrants are judged by an independent panel representing the business, academic, public service, and consulting communities in North Texas. Companies are evaluated based on the following criteria:
- Executive commitment to business ethics
- Company ethics program
- Demonstration of sound ethical practices
- Demonstration of commitment to stakeholders
Over the past 14 years many of Dallas’ leading large, medium and small companies have been honored locally and several have gone on to win the American Business Ethics Award.
