The Best in Minority Business Awards began in 2007 to celebrate the spirit, creativity and resourcefulness of Birmingham’s brightest minority and female business leadership. The awards featured eight categories including oustanding young professional male and female, attorneys, human resources-encouraging diversity, non-profit leadership, faith-based leadership, best in minority business and distinguished leadership. This event is a powerful networking tool and a reminder of the need to recognize diversity and inclusiveness.
