Oregon Ethics in Business

Honoring ethical business practice beyond the expected


The Oregon Ethics in Business Awards honor those organizations and individuals who have demonstrated ethical business practice in its broadest interpretation: in the workplace, the marketplace, the environment, and the community. The recipients of these awards will have, by act and example, gone beyond the expected to achieve excellence in ethical business practices.


Why nominate a business?

  • Businesses receive recognition in front of a room of 400 Oregon business professionals
  • Recipients are published in Oregon Business Magazine after the event
  • Receiving this award proves to customers what businesses strive to show and say on a daily basis: That ethics matter
  • Because you care about the business and want them to be recognized for their great work!

Lisa believes that businesses should be in service to their community and do their part to strengthen their neighborhoods. She has demonstrated this both in the way she does business, and outside the business, where she has been an advocate for food security, public health, and education. She has served on a number of non-profit boards including the Oregon Food Bank, Upstream Public Health, Think Local First, All Hands Raised, the James Beard Public Market, Village Gardens, Oregon Business Association and Harper’s Playground.



Today, as Founder and CEO of Green Zebra Grocery, Lisa is achieving her dream of making healthy food more convenient and accessible.

Congratulations to our 2017 recipients!
