Who The Summit Is For:
The mission of the Derby Diversity & Business Summit (DDBS) is to intersect Diverse Owned Businesses and to promote Diversity within the Executive Workforce and Supply Chain.
DDBS has an international draw and exists to bring together the world’s top, diverse suppliers and executives - inclusive of ALL diverse groups (Minority, Women, LGBTQ, Veteran & Disabled) on a national scale to network, develop and enjoy the Derby.
A portion of the 2020 proceeds will be donated to kick start the formation of an NGLCC LGBTBE Chamber of Commerce Chapter in Louisville, Kentucky.
By attending, guests will have the ability to participate in development seminars, panel discussions, and even hear from highly sought after speakers to share their experiences in the business world of Supplier Diversity & Diversity and Inclusion.
Along with networking opportunities that will be available at the business sessions, guests will also have the chance to attend A-List celebrity events and the derby festivities with peers!
To accomplish our mission, each year, we host a Business Summit with the nation’s elite and diverse business leaders in Louisville, Kentucky, to create intersectional accessibility. We take a portion of the proceeds and identify projects in which we can provide funding that supports education, business development, and training initiatives for organizations committed to the advancement of Diverse Business Owners & Executives.
Derby Week in Louisville, Kentucky, is one of the premier hosting spots across the world. You will experience networking opportunities during the business sessions and also while attending A-List celebrity events and derby festivities.
The Derby Diversity & Business Summit team has assembled an inclusive and elite group of suppliers and executives spanning all diversity categories - MBE, WBE, LGBTBE, and Veteran/Disabled. Our corporate partners will have access to businesses with annual revenues that exceed $10 million and many of the country’s top degreed diverse executives.
