Awards and Recognition

  • Staff recognition

    Dana-Farber's Awards and Recognition program recognizes and rewards the incredible achievements of our staff. These programs support our efforts to create an ideal work environment, celebrate successes, and foster collaboration and teamwork.

    Impact Award

    This award is presented quarterly to an outstanding Dana-Farber staff member and an outstanding Dana-Farber team whose work significantly contributes to the mission of Dana-Farber and furthers our work toward creating an ideal work environment.

    These individuals contribute to a highly collaborative environment, help to improve operational efficiency, exhibit dedication in the form of going above and beyond in their work, and take on tasks and projects that are normally not within their scope.

    They demonstrate initiative, team work, and competence, and embody the core values of Impact, Discovery, Respect and Excellence. Nominations are due the first day of the month in which the recognition will be awarded.

    To nominate an individual or team, please print and complete the Impact Award nomination form and fax it to 617-632-4421.

    Rowlee Award for Staff Excellence

    The Rowlee Award for Staff Excellence is given annually to a member of Dana-Farber staff who leads by practicing outstanding work habits. This staff member gives his or her best on a daily basis, contributing to and sharing responsibility for establishing and maintaining Dana-Farber's high standards.

    The Rowlee Award is made possible through the generosity of Charles and Rowena Simberg of Scottsdale, Arizona, and reflects the first names of its creators, Rowena and Charlie.

    Any Dana-Farber staff member or contract employee, with the exception of MDs, PhDs, nurses, and supervisory staff, is eligible to receive the award.

    All Dana-Farber staff members, contract employees, patients, family members, and volunteers are welcome to submit a nomination. The winner is honored in an annual ceremony and receives an award of $1,000, courtesy of Mr. and Mrs. Simberg.

    To nominate someone, please print and complete the Rowlee Award nomination form and fax it to 617-632-4421.
