During these tumultuous and often dark times, the one thing that has remained constant, is the strength and resiliency of our community. Throughout 2020, these leaders pivoted to continue to serve our community during a global pandemic and financial crisis, stood up against systemic racial injustice, and served as an example to us all of what it looks like when businesses "walk the walk." Join GSBA in honoring 2020's business leaders and champions of justice during the virtual 40th Annual GSBA Business & Humanitarian Awards: Forward Vision.
