2022 Diversity, Equity + Inclusion Awards


LETTER FROM THE PUBLISHER

Josh Schimmels


This year’s annual Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Symposium and Awards event was broken into a series of two virtual events presented one week apart.

Part One took place on March 16th and included a series of panel discussions featuring companies and individuals who have shown an exceptional commitment to advancing diversity and inclusion in the workplace and business leadership. The panels featured in-depth and spirited discussions about the roles businesses, leadership and mentorship can play to accelerate diversity, inclusion and equity in the workplaces here in Los Angeles and beyond.

For Part Two, which took place Wednesday, March 23rd, the Los Angeles Business Journal hosted the awards portion, where we honored and celebrated diversity & inclusion champion individuals and organizations in the Los Angeles region for their ongoing efforts to further and respect the unique needs, perspectives and potential of all their team members while simultaneously creating an inclusive environment that enables diversity to thrive.

It was truly a privilege to shine the spotlight on these terrific leaders and organizations within the Los Angeles business community and unveil our honorees for this year’s awards.

Many thanks to our sponsors, who help to make this event possible, and once again, congratulations to the honorees – Los Angeles based professionals and organizations who “lead by example,” successfully blending effective business vision with a passionate commitment to positively making a difference, furthering diversity, equity and inclusion both in the world of business and in the communities they serve.
