Day of Quality
The Day of Quality is held on a specific day each year and is a time when process excellence professionals from organizations all over the greater Rochester area work with not-for-profit organizations and small businesses to help improve a key operational process at their home location.
The day is modeled after United Way’s Day of Caring and is a great way for GRQC members to give back to the upstate community, and for organizations to learn more about the power of quality and continuous improvement. It is a very popular event for all involved. The effort culminates in a great celebration event when the organizations and their partner quality professionals present the work that was done at the Day of Quality, including the results and benefits from the process improvements made. GRQC members come to hear the reports and to network and celebrate the teams that made change happen.
In recent years, many great quality organizations have participated, including Children’s Institute, Goodwill of the Finger Lakes, Hope Lodge, Just Cause, Lollypop Farm, Rochester Education Opportunity Center, Rochester Institute of Technology, Rochester Regional Health, ROCovery Fitness, St Joseph’s Neighborhood Center, Villa of Hope, Willow Domestic Violence Center, and the YWCA.
GRQC is now accepting applications for the 2024 Day of Quality, to be held April 18 and April 24. Email DoQ@grqc.org to indicate your interest and receive an application. Applications are due March 15.
