Humanitarian Award Dinner

Since 1949, The Diversity Center has honored men and women of outstanding dedication and community service in our region at the annual Humanitarian Award Dinner. Nominees exhibit an extensive record of involvement in civic, charitable, volunteer, and professional organizations. Each nominee has contributed to the improvement of human relations among diverse groups in Northeast Ohio.

The American Greetings LeadDIVERSITY Outstanding Alumni Award is also presented to the alumnus who embodies the mission of The Diversity Center. LeadDIVERSITY is a program in which a select group of professionals engage with regional leaders and the greater community to raise their awareness of diversity issues, build their leadership skills, and enhance their networks.
