We encourage large and small businesses to work together. We also connect government agencies to our clients and create B2B relationships. 

These events are a way to create business relationships in a relaxed setting. Highlighting and honoring these companies is our mission in supporting their excellent work. Corporate Executives and Supplier Diversity Directors; Federal, State and Local Government; Veteran-owned; Women-owned; Minority-owned businesses are among the people we are recognizing.

  • Large companies that subcontract with small companies and enter into formal mentor-protégé agreements to help their small partners grow

This Gala gives professional business men and women the opportunity to meet one-on-one with other industry leaders who play a crucial role empowering the business community and the nation as a whole. These business leaders are creating prosperity and ensuring everyone equal participation in society.
