JOIN US FOR OUR FIRST VIRTUAL GALA!
Recognizing and celebrating the achievements of notable Minority Business Enterprises and Corporations is the culmination of highlighting success for the Ohio Minority Supplier Development Council (OMSDC).
The 2020 Annual Awards Gala is on November 20th and it is where we will pause to spotlight companies who have risen to the top in their market, found ways to respond to COVID in outreach and showed commitment to changing social injustice.
The Gala is one of OMSDC’s signature events, highlighting the growth and success of Minority Business Enterprises and the commitment to supplier diversity by the corporate members in the region.
We are excited to have businessman, educator and speaker STEDMAN GRAHAM as the Keynote Speaker during the 2020 Annual Awards Gala on November 20th.
