Vertigo was proud to be a Friend Sponsor for this year’s LIBN’s Diversity in Business Awards!
Thank you to all of the wonderful attendees, honorees and sponsors for making this year’s event the best yet!
As LIBN publisher Joe Giametta said, it’s 2019 and diversity is at the forefront of our nation’s public discourse. Why, then, does it fall by the wayside when it comes to the business community?
Since it launched four years ago, this empowering ceremony has served to highlight the outstanding achievements of business leaders of diverse ethnic backgrounds and those within disabilities, and to celebrate those who have made strides to normalize diversity in the workforce. The awards give these leaders a chance to shine and inspire the business community at large.
Vertigo Account Executive Meredith Lessing said, “What an exhilarating morning! I particularly loved the musical treatment, with each awardee being accompanied by a different inspiring song as they walked on stage. Rudy Breedy was an outstanding and very entertaining emcee. Diversity is a topic we’re passionate about — Vertigo’s Spanglish program was created from the idea that the future of marketing lies in multicultural advertising and the ability to communicate across cultures. We’re delighted to collaborate with LIBN on events like this one and the Long Island Digital awards — these kinds of celebrations are designed to open doors on Long Island and make it a more inclusive and dynamic place to live and work.”
