SVP of Communications and Community Affairs,
If Broward County, Florida, had a health motto, it would be “collaboration works.” One out of 10 Floridians live in the county, one of the most expensive and diverse in the state. Leaders from government, business, and nonprofit sectors work in tandem to lower barriers to improvements in health, focusing on individuals and families who are working yet unable to afford basic needs such as affordable housing, food, child care, health care and transportation.
The South Florida Business Journal will recognize diverse individuals who exemplify excellence in business, and work to improve their communities and the broader economy.
We invite you to nominate an outstanding diverse business leader in the South Florida area who embodies success in business, helping to illustrate how diversity in thought can lead companies to greater success.
The SJRE Committee has centered racial equity and dismantling racism as the focus of its work. Racism is a template for social injustices of all kinds: sexism, classism, homophobia, etc. Racism is baked into laws, interactions, and narratives. Racism is also intersectional - race and gender, race and age, race and disability systematically disadvantages and harms people. The SJRE Committee is committed to co-creating justice in the Broward business community as reflected in its vision, mission, goals & objectives.
