Business Diversity Summit
The Arizona Hispanic Chamber of Commerce 10th Business Diversity Summit will feature companies leading the way in supplier diversity. Companies doing more than $1 million in business with minority- and women-owned firms will be recognized as part of the Arizona Million Dollar Circle of Excellence (AZMDCE). A webinar series and matchmaking events that pair suppliers and buyers are also planned to further assist businesses secure opportunities with corporate Arizona and government agencies.
A highlight of the Program is the release of the 2021 roster for Arizona’s Million Dollar Circle of Excellence. The Million Dollar Circle of Excellence is modeled after the Billion Dollar Roundtable (BDR) which represents member companies that spend more than $1 billion annually with minority- and women-owned companies.
In addition, the Phoenix MBDA Business Center will recognize outstanding program participants and center members. The center counsels mid-sized minority-owned firms (over $1 million in annual revenue) on how to take their companies to the next level. The annual awards are designed to celebrate and recognize the outstanding achievements of minority entrepreneurs, as well as individuals and organizations, who have demonstrated leadership and commitment in advancing minority business enterprises. Local winners are eligible to be nominated to receive regional and national MBDA awards.
