While there will be many activities occurring throughout the day, none of these is more exciting and more significant that the Vanguard Awards Recognition.  This award recognizes an individual/s for his/her/their work in inclusion and diversity either with their current firm or through their career.  However, the nominee must currently work in government or any area in the building industry where they advocate for or are directly involved in the inclusion of diverse businesses into their organization.
