The National Restaurant Association encourages restaurant operators nationwide to apply or nominate a fellow industry professional for its 2013 Faces of Diversity Award. The Faces of Diversity Award is sponsored by PepsiCo Foodservice and celebrates the diversity of the restaurant industry by honoring individuals who have achieved the American Dream.

Application/nomination forms are accepted online until January 7, 2013.

“As one of the most diverse industries in America, the restaurant industry is full of success stories of people of all cultures and backgrounds who have achieved the American Dream,” says Dawn Sweeney, National Restaurant Association president and CEO. “Our Faces of Diversity Award celebrates the unique stories that make up our industry, and highlights that diversity strengthens the fabric of the restaurant community.”

The Faces of Diversity Award recognizes the diversity of the restaurant industry and the role it plays in helping individuals achieve professional and personal success. Three individuals, who through hard work and determination have realized their dreams, are selected each year as the national winners. Winners will be recognized on the NRA’s website, and a $2,500 ProStart student scholarship will be presented in their name.
