Association for Women in Communications Honors Ernst & Young

The accounting giant has been honored with the association's Ruth Weyand Award, and the timing couldn't be more right, what with blaring headlines about the Wal-Mart and Morgan
Stanley alleged sex discrimination cases. The Ruth Weyand Award, named in honor of a labor attorney who worked tirelessly for women's rights in the workplace, recognizes companies
with forward-thinking policies toward women and minorities. Ernst & Young captured the award in recognition of the flexibility the company provides its workers as well as
policies and programs to help women develop and advance in the firm. The award will be handed out during the association's annual conference October 6 through 9 in Charlotte, N.C.
Previous winners include Deloitte & Touche, Discovery Communications and SAS Institute. (For a related story, see page 1.)
