ALBUQUERQUE ― State Auditor Brian S. Colón was recognized Thursday as a 2019 Diverse Business Leader by Albuquerque Business First for his demonstrated commitment to go above and beyond to bolster equity and promote authentic diversity and inclusion in the workplace.
“I am a proud advocate and ally for underrepresented populations and communities without a voice or seat at the table,” Colón said. “I am grateful and humbled to be included in this group of stellar honorees for this year’s awards. Thank you to our community for always answering my call when it comes to empowering and embracing inclusion to increase diversity in all areas.”
Honorees were selected after first being publically nominated. A panel of judges then evaluated nominees on various criteria comprised of their achievements in advancing inclusive diversity in all areas including age, disability status, gender, sexual orientation, race and religion.
