The Phoenix MBDA Business Center and the Arizona Hispanic Chamber of Commerce will host the 8th Annual Business Diversity Summit.
This year a separate Business Matchmaking session will take place following the formal event.
Modeled after the globally-recognized Billion Dollar Roundtable, the AZ MDCE recognizes companies leading the way in supplier diversity by spending more than $1 million dollars annually (Tier 1) with Women- and Minority- owned (W/MBEs) vendors in our state. Last year, 33 companies submitted their spend report and were inducted into the 2018 Arizona Million Dollar Circle of Excellence (see attached poster). The goal this year is to recognize and celebrate even more companies at the 2019 Diversity Business Summit.
The Million Dollar Circle of Excellence was created in collaboration with the Greater Phoenix Black Chamber of Commerce, The American Indian Chamber of Commerce of Arizona, Associated Minority Contractors of America, Chinese Chamber of Commerce of Arizona, Pacific Southwest Supplier Diversity Council, Asian Chamber of Commerce, Women’s Business Enterprise Council-West, and additional community partners.
