About the Multicultural Leadership Award

There is something to be said of those who achieve excellence despite the odds. While minorities are still underrepresented in powerful leadership positions, there are still those who demonstrate the determination needed to make a difference. The National Diversity Council seeks not only to uphold and promote the principles of diversity and leadership but also seeks to recognize those individuals who personify those principles. The Multicultural Leadership Award is designed to recognize individuals who have made a difference through their achievements and exemplify the ability to excel in their field.
