40th Annual Minority Achievers Awards
& Scholarship Gala
Honoring EXCELLENCE…in Life’s Work, Service and Scholarship
The 40th Annual Minority Achievers Awards & Scholarship Gala pays tribute to the city’s top minority leaders and achievers who have performed outstanding service in their profession and for the community. At this signature fundraising event, local corporations, organizations and educational institutions realize the opportunity to honor talented minority men and women who demonstrate excellence.
Additionally, the annual awards dinner has developed into a showcase of the significant academic talents and successes of “CLD Scholars” — CLD youth participants who have achieved distinction by being awarded scholarships from educational institutions for reaching their intellectual and educational potential. In 2019, college, community and university partners awarded $5.2 million in full and partial scholarships to CLD Alumni. Read the press release here

IMPORTANT UPDATE BELOW:
40th Annual Minority Achievers Awards & Scholarship Gala Cancelled
Dear Center for Leadership Development supporters:
You have likely already received the news from Governor Holcomb, and Mayor Hogsett regarding the novel coronavirus COVID-19 announced at 4:00 pm Thursday. According to their directive and in keeping with the announcement by the Indiana State Department of Health and the Marion County Public Health Department to implement local restrictions on all non-essential gatherings of more than 250 individuals in Indianapolis, Center for Leadership Development has made the difficult decision to cancel its 40th Annual Minority Achievers Awards & Scholarship Gala scheduled for next Thursday, March 19 at the Indiana Convention Center.
We are keenly aware that this will be a disappointment to you, since the Annual Minority Achievers Awards & Scholarship Gala is an excellent opportunity for business, community, and higher education partners to come together. Canceling this event is a safe and prudent action to take for the good of our community.
Thank you for your support, especially during this challenging time.
