2017 Pride in Business Awards




Join us Nov. 4 as we celebrate the incredible business professionals in our community!
The selection committee has narrowed it down to three finalists in each category.


For the first time ever we have all gender neutral categories.
This year nominations have been evaluated and chosen by an outside, unbiased committee comprised of leaders from other diversity chambers.
