The Culture Shifting Awards

recognizes leaders and pioneers of diversity and those who care about growth and innovation through inclusion. It was originally launched during the summer of 2010 in the Hamptons and scaled to Silicon Valley in 2015. This invite only event gathers over 200 accomplished black leaders that are hard to reach and often, under the radar.  Guests attend to celebrate the honorees for their contributions to business and society as well as to deal-make, find points of collaboration, and tap into the social currency, intellectual and financial capital among leaders of the old and new economy.
