On March 31, Amy Domini received Villanova University’s 2009 Praxis Award in Professional Ethics. Recipients exemplify ethical behavior in their respective fields, promote and encourage integrity, work toward a greater good, conduct research in the field of ethics, or influence the practice of ethics through professional works or leadership.
"In its own way," said Mark Doorley, director of Villanova’s ethics program, "the Praxis Award in Professional Ethics celebrates the University’s commitment to a holistic education. We celebrate people who take seriously their role as a responsible member of their professional community, or who use their academic position to advance the conversation about the role of ethics in the professions."
The Praxis Award in Professional Ethics has been awarded since 2007. Dooley noted that the first two recipients of the award had been "outstanding human beings and professionals," and said, "I know the same is true of Ms. Amy Domini, particularly her commitment to socially responsible oversight of her clients’ financial resources. She is not only a person who has decided to move in this direction herself; her career exemplifies her commitment to engaging the rest of her profession to recognize their responsibilities in this arena as well."
