The NILG is now accepting nominations through Tuesday, May 15, 2022 for the 2022 Lois Ellen Baumerich Lifetime Achievement Award.
Very few times in life do you encounter someone who is the heart and soul of a community, and for the EEO/AA community, Lois E. Baumerich was just that.
She dedicated her time, talent, expertise and energy to the National Industry Liaison Group (NILG), Northeast Region Corporate Industry Liaison Group (NERC), and other professional organizations. A role model to many affirmative action professionals, Lois gave of herself endlessly in pursuit of equality, affirmative action, and inclusion. Sadly, the EEO/AA community was shaken on July 18, 2007, when Lois passed from a heart attack following a pipe explosion in Manhattan near Grand Central Station.
While the NILG community certainly misses her quiet demeanor, kindness, and her wealth of knowledge, her memory lives on through the Lois E. Baumerich Lifetime Achievement Award established in her honor. Each year, nominations are accepted to recognize an EEO/AA professional who embodies the high standards of education and community support set forth by Lois all those years ago.
