66th Annual Humanitarian Award Dinner

The 66th Annual Humanitarian Award Dinner will honor three stellar individuals who have delivered exemplary leadership in civic, charitable, and professional organizations. Our Honorees have profoundly advanced Northeast Ohio as a diverse and inclusive community. 

Your Humanitarian Award Dinner support will further our mission of eliminating bias, bigotry, and racism by underwriting our School & Youth programming. With the number of hate groups and crimes in the U.S. and Ohio on the rise, our programs have never been more needed. 

During the 2020-2021 academic school year, The Diversity Center will empower more than 14,000 youth and youth serving professionals in 11 counties via in-school programming, conferences and retreats.We are changing the culture and creating communities where all people are connected, respected and valued.

We invite you to join in our celebration.
