Description

The City of Houston’s Office of Business Opportunity (OBO) Advisory Board is proud to present the 5th Annual Champions of Diversity Awards Ceremony on Thursday, February 1, 2018, at the Grand Concourse C of the George R. Brown Convention Center, 1001 Avenida de las Americas, Houston, Texas 77010. The event will kick off with a Pre-Reception at 6 p.m., the Program 7 p.m. and a Post-Reception immediately following the program to celebrate the honorees. The theme for the 5th Annual Champions of Business Opportunity Awards is: “A Celebration of Building and Embracing Economic Diversity.” We are proud to have Houston First Corporation serve as a Presenting Sponsor for the 3rd year. Mayor Sylvester Turner is our Honorary Chair and will bring remarks at the event.

For the past five years, Champions of Diversity Awards Ceremony has been recognizing prime contractors, as well as Minority, Women, Small, and Disadvantaged Business Enterprises (MWSDBEs) for their outstanding performances on City of Houston contracts. We also have a City of Houston Department and Community Partner that has supported and contributed to the mission and purpose of the MWDSBE program. One of the evening’s highlights is the presentation of the “Ernest B. McGowen, Sr. Champion of Diversity Award.” This prestigious award is bestowed upon a person whose collective efforts and impact epitomize the mission and purpose of the MWSDBE Program.

The City’s Minority, Women, Small, and Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (MWSDBE) Program is in its 33th year and has awarded more than $6 billion dollars to MWSDBEs on City contracts since inception. Enacted in 1984, the Program seeks private sector assistance in easing difficulties that may be encountered by MWSBEs in accessing City contracts and to improve communication among small businesses, MWBEs, Non-MWBEs and the City of Houston. Carlecia D. Wright serves as the Director of the Office of Business Opportunity Department, under which the MWSDBE Program is administered.

We are seeking sponsorships for this year’s Champions of Diversity Awards Ceremony. Your sponsorship will not only enable us to present this event at no cost to the honorees and other guests but will also support OBO’s ongoing program initiatives as well as provide scholarship support for college students pursuing degrees in business-related courses. We sincerely hope your company will support this event as a sponsor. We are collaborating with one of our business partners, the Houston Business Development, Inc., a 501(c) 3 nonprofit organization, so that your donation may receive a tax benefit. To appear on the printed program, we need your commitment by January 26, 2018.
