THE Vivian Belen Award
Kathy Keshemberg, 2022 Vivian Belen Award Winner
As one of the NRWA’s original founders, Vivian Belen was extraordinary. A dedicated volunteer, she helped build the NRWA from the ground up and firmly believed in our mission as a nonprofit, member-driven organization for resume writers.
To honor Vivian’s selfless commitment to the NRWA and recognize other volunteers who have followed in her footsteps, the NRWA created the Vivian Belen Award. Past Belen Award recipients exemplify everything she believed in:
In 2022, the NRWA recognized an individual for their commitment to the values that Belen brought forth as a founding member: Kathy Keshemberg.

The NRWA created the Vivian Belen Award to honor those who have given selflessly to the organization, in many cases, without the “title” of board member. They exemplify everything Vivian believed in. They continue to do her work. To ensure that we follow the code of ethics she helped formulate, practice fairness and honesty, and continue mentoring and educating peers and colleagues.
