Do you know an MGEU member (past or present) who has demonstrated an exceptional spirit of humanity through volunteer, advocacy, and/or philanthropic work in Manitoba?

If so, the MGEU is encouraging members to nominate a fellow member for the 2023 MGEU Humanitarian Award, which will be presented at the union's Convention in October.

Selected by the Equality and Human Rights Committee, the award is presented to a member who has made a humanitarian contribution in Manitoba. Their efforts can span many years or a single notable event. Examples of such humanitarian acts include, but are not limited to: lobbying for positive changes in a community or in a workplace, starting a support group, educating others, providing support to fellow Union members, organizing vigils/remembrance events, and supporting vulnerable Manitobans in need of food, shelter, or clothing.

If you know someone who you feel is deserving of this award, please nominate them using the Humanitarian Award Online Nomination Form. Please provide detailed information on the form to give the selection committee a complete understanding of the nominee’s contributions, including letters of support from other individuals or organizations (which can be uploaded and attached to the form).

The deadline for nominations is May 31, 2023.
