The African American Business Leaders Group would like to invite you to our celebration of Black History Month being held on February 13th in collaboration with Muhlenberg College. Although, American history naturally includes the many contributions of its citizens and leaders of color, there was a void in the telling of the story which led to the special attention and focus which occurs during the month of February. This month presents us with the opportunity to not only look back in time, but also to assess where we as a society are today and look forward to the future.
The February event will recognize some exceptional community leaders who are making substantial contributions to improving our community and advancing our civic engagement at several levels. This event also allows the AABLC to identify and work with our future business leaders who are making their mark in the academic setting. As evidenced by its current organizational structure and staffing, the Greater Lehigh Valley Chamber has committed to recognizing diversity and striving for inclusion from all segments of the business community and the AABLC acknowledges their on- going efforts.
As 2020 gets into full swing, this celebration of Black History Month sets the tone for our overall community to recognize that although our communities are comprised of individuals and businesses with both diverse backgrounds and success stories, we are all committed to moving in the same positive direction and seek the best possible for our business enterprises and our community.
