Every year the Coast Guard participates in national civil rights awards programs to enable you to recognize and celebrate your coworkers and their contributions to civil rights and equal opportunity. In 2024, you can recognize and celebrate your coworkers by nominating them for any of the following awards:
The simple act of nominating a team member for an award can have a profound positive impact on the morale, productivity, and success of not only the team member but also the team. Therefore, you, whether military (active duty or reserve) or civilian, are encouraged to work through your chain of command to nominate deserving coworkers for civil rights awards.
Between January and May, ALCOASTS soliciting nominations for each award will be posted. With the release of each ALCOAST, information regarding eligibility criteria, performance period, and nomination procedures will also be posted on the Civil Rights Directorate Civil Rights Award Program webpage so you can readily access guidance on when and how to submit a nomination for a Civil Rights Award.
To learn about the accomplishments and contributions of last year’s Civil Rights Award winners, visit the 2023 Civil Rights Award Recipients webpage. If you have any questions about the Civil Rights Awards Program, contact Edward Stoker at Edward.A.Stoker@uscg.mil
