She was nominated for the PNM Award for Individual Excellence in Ethical Business Practice. The awards were created to honor noteworthy organizations and individuals who practice and promote ethical business conduct in day-to-day operations and management, as well as in their response to crises and challenges.

“I cannot think of any other award I would rather be named as a finalists, than one that recognizes honesty, integrity and ethical actions.” said Jo Mixon, “I am extremely honored!”

Businesses, nonprofit organizations and individuals were nominated by a customer, client, employee, vendor or others who felt the company or individual exhibited superb ethical practices. The nominees were evaluated according to how they demonstrate the five principles in their interaction with staff, customers, vendors, donors and the community. The five principles include integrity, fairness and justice, stewardship, life-enhancing, and transparency. 

The PNM Award for Individual Excellence in Ethical Business Practice is named as a tribute to John Ackerman. 

The winners of the awards will be announced at Samaritan Counseling Center’s New Mexico Ethics in Business Awards event April 25, 2018 at Sandia Resort and Casino in Albuquerque.
