The Bridging the Gap initiative is dedicated to evolving the business culture of Greater Baltimore by developing and fostering relationships between majority, minority, and women-owned businesses. In addition to promoting a culture of diversity, equity, and inclusion in all organizations, the Bridging the Gap initiative provides targeted support and programming to help minority and women-owned businesses in Greater Baltimore succeed and grow.
Each year, through the Bridging the Gap Achievement Awards, the GBC recognizes exceptional minority, women-owned, majority businesses and executives who nurture the development of minority and women-owned businesses in Greater Baltimore and Maryland.
“It is important to recognize minority and women-owned businesses as they are vital for an economy to thrive,” said Donald C. Fry, President and CEO of the Greater Baltimore Committee. “The growth and vibrancy of minority and women-owned businesses contribute to the health of a region’s economy and they bring valuable new ideas, new perspectives and new job opportunities to the regional economy. The GBC looks forward to recognizing this year’s nominees and winners.”
Nominations are now closed.
Winners will be recognized at an in-person Bridging the Gap Achievement Awards Recognition Ceremony on November 10, 2021.
