RecognizeDC – Not Your Average Awards Program

SpectrumCareers created RecognizeDC to honor leading professionals who are advancing the Washington, D.C. business community. We provide a less formal and welcoming environment to:

1. Honor top D.C. talent
2. Create a platform for comradery
3. Facilitate idea exchange and collaboration
4. Provide networking opportunities

Our formula behind the award program is to drive mentorship, ignite collaboration & celebrate the movers & shakers of Greater Washington, D.C.

For upcoming events, visit the RecognizeDC website.


Each year, we partner with leading companies in the region to host three annual award events: Top Accounting Executives, GovCon Summit and Top HR & Talent Professionals.

Top Accounting Executives

Outstanding work is not exclusive to the top level of an organization, so recognition should not be limited to those select few individuals. Every year, RecognizeDC honors the achievements of the often overlooked and underappreciated, Accounting Executive. More widely known as the disseminators of financial information to all interested parties, these professionals are simultaneously the lead analyzer, interpreter, problem solver, company historian and number translator for non-number people. Excellence in Accounting Executives leads to excellence throughout the company and is therefore an achievement to be celebrated.

Past honorees

GovCon Summit

RecognizeDC’s annual GovCon Summit recognizes Federal and Government Contracting visionaries, influencers and leaders in the D.C. metro area. Each year, a dynamic panel of thought leaders provides a unique perspective on the industry.

Past honorees

Top HR & Talent Professionals

The HR and talent community in the D.C. metro area plays a vital role in the growth and success of organizations across all industries, especially today as we are experiencing significant changes in the landscape of the traditional workplace. The 2019 Top HR & Talent Professionals event celebrates professionals who have made significant, positive changes within the organizations they serve.
