About the Leadership Awards

Leadership is not easy to define, but it is an essential element in achieving success and inspiring others to maximize their potential. A leader establishes a vision, sets direction and provides the guidance needed to reach a goal.

The 2017 NMSDC Leadership Awards recognizes the dynamic corporate executives, minority business owners and NMSDC affiliate council presidents for outstanding leadership that has a positive impact on their companies and resonates throughout the NMSDC network.

We look forward to sharing this exciting and memorable evening with you.
