Join us on Thursday, October 1, 2020 at The Living Color Gala to honor those who have made it their mission to attract and foster diversity initiatives in the state of Utah.
In partnership with the Black Chamber of Commerce, the Utah Asian Chamber of Commerce, the Utah Hispanic Chamber of Commerce, the SLC Pacific Island Business Alliance, the Utah LGBTQ+ Chamber of Commerce, and Young Professionals Salt Lake City, Utah Business will host a black-tie gala that will bring awareness to the changing business landscape in Utah, as well as create the foundation upon which further recruiting efforts can be built.
The Living Color Gala will be held at The Grand America Hotel and will feature a yet-to-be-announced keynote sponsored by DOMO, live cultural entertainment, appetizers, a cash bar and a three-course meal.
During this inspirational event, we will honor the individuals who are creating a lasting impact on Utah’s diverse communities. In addition to specific individuals, small, medium, large, and nonprofit companies also have the opportunity to be recognized during the gala. All honorees will be featured in the September 2020 edition of Utah Business.
The evening will surely be a night to remember!
