WHAT IS THE ACE AWARDS?

The MMSDC 37th Annual A.C.E. Awards celebrates the business relationships between major corporations and minority-owned firms.

At this year’s virtual event, minority business enterprises (MBEs) are honored for their excellent service in the past year and corporate members are recognized for their commitment to minority supplier development and supporting minority-owned businesses through purchasing contracts and advocacy.

The evening begins with a virtual reception from 6:30-7:00 p.m. ET featuring an interactive lobby, Zoom networking celebration with our virtual DJ, and other creative concepts followed by our virtual program and awards presentation in our 3-D ballroom.

This year’s special virtual event includes special recognition with our President’s Community Impact Award which honors 10 individuals, organizations, and companies who have gone above and beyond their service during the pandemic. The night concludes with a special toast so be prepared to raise a glass with us. We hope you will join us as we celebrate Perseverance Under Pressure: How Diamonds Are Made!
