Living Color Gala

Meet our 2019 Living Color honorees. These activists are working hard to make Utah more diverse.

Utah Business and Living Color Utah are pleased to present the first-annual Living Color Gala—a night to honor those who have made it their mission to attract and foster diversity initiatives in the state of 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, the Utah Cultural Trust, and Young Professionals Salt Lake City, Utah Business will host a black-tie gala that will bring awareness to the changing business landscape in Utah, as well as create the foundation upon which further recruiting efforts can be built.

Hosted At The Utah Jazz Arena

Join us for a black-tie gala honoring diversity initiatives across the state.
Held at the Vivint Smart Home Arena on August 21st, the gala will feature live music, appetizers, a cash bar, a three-course meal. The event will be MC’d by Brittany Johnson of ABC4 News and will feature Raymond A. Hall, the chief human resources officer at The Larry H. Miller Group of Companies, as a speaker. The evening will surely be a night to remember.

The networking reception will begin at 5:30 in the atrium of the Vivint Smart Home Arena, followed by the awards dinner on the stadium floor at 7:00pm.

During this inspirational event, we will honor the individuals who are creating a lasting impact on Utah’s diverse communities. In addition to specific individuals, small, medium, large, and nonprofit companies also have the opportunity to be recognized during the gala. All honorees will be featured in the August 2019 edition of Utah Business.
