Living Color Gala

Utah Business and Living Color Utah are proud to present our second-annual Living Color Gala—a night to honor those individuals who have made it their mission to attract and foster diversity and inclusion initiatives throughout the state of Utah.

About Living Color

Living Color Utah is a project commissioned by Salt Lake City Corporation to provide resources for Utah’s diverse population. The project is supported by the state’s ethnic chambers with the goal of supporting diverse communities at Utah organizations. Watch the video below to learn more about Living Color Utah.

A black-tie gala to celebrate diversity

In partnership with the Black Chamber of Commerce, the Utah Asian Chamber of Commerce, the Utah Hispanic Chamber of Commerce, the SLC Pacific Island Business Alliance, the Utah LGBTQ+ Chamber of Commerce, and Young Professionals Salt Lake City, Utah Business hosts this black-tie event to bring awareness to the changing business landscape in Utah and create a foundation upon which further recruiting efforts can be built.

The event will be held on October 1st, 2020 from 5:00-8:30 PM at The Grand America Hotel and will feature keynote speaker, Soledad O’Brien sponsored by DOMO, live cultural entertainment, appetizers, a cash bar, and a three-course meal.

An evening celebrating culture

During the networking reception hosted from 5-7 PM in the courtyard of the Grand America Hotel, Living Color Utah will provide a cash-bar and pre-dinner entertainment including African drum circles, LGTBQ+ photo booths, drag queens, dance troupes, and more.

Honor members of our community

Earlier this year, Utah Business and Living Color Utah accepted nominations for our Living Color awards. Our organizations picked the best individuals, teams, organizations, and companies who are working to foster inclusive initiatives throughout the state. Those individuals will be honored at this event, each with a video about who they are and what they are working to accomplish. Meet those individuals here. Join us to recognize these extraordinary individuals. Tickets sold below.
