ICAN Receives 2023 Business Excellence Award
ICAN announced as recipient of a Greater Omaha Chamber 2023 Business Excellence Award in Leadership.
The award is part of an annual tradition recognizing area organizations in four categories: Leadership, Innovation, Philanthropy, and Sustained Excellence.
More than 70 companies were nominated for this year’s awards, with just 17 businesses identified as award recipients, “trailblazers who go above and beyond every day,” according to event organizers.
“Thriving communities rely on businesses to drive innovation, generate employment opportunities, and foster social connections. Attributing success to hard work and dedication, we proudly recognize the 17 organizations being honored today as more than just excellent – they are truly exceptional,” said Tim Burke, interim president, and CEO, of Greater Omaha Chamber.
ICAN is passionate about playing a key role in helping leaders evolve and grow and helping organizations invest in their talent pipeline.
“Our customized programs allow companies to work alongside ICAN to create leadership curriculum specific to their company’s unique needs,” said Aileen Warren, President & CEO.
Those companies inevitably benefit by retaining and engaging their top talent, and the graduates learn to lead using their strengths, connect across the organization, and best contribute to company goals.
ICAN recently created a new program, Examining Unconscious Bias, to educate leaders on the importance of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion. They have 77 graduates who have benefited from this program and are now more aware of their blind spots and have the tools and strategies to create systemic change.
