This year Diamonds in Diversity was held on Friday, October 18th, 2019, at the Vinoy Renaissance Resort & Golf Club in St. Petersburg, Florida.
Diamonds in Diversity, originally called The Diamonds Award Gala, began with a sold out event five years ago. To celebrate the LGBTQ+ Best in Business and Community, we are anticipating 250 civic and community business leaders in attendance for 2019.
The Tampa Bay Diversity Chamber Foundation, along with Balance Tampa Bay, will continue the tradition of awarding a scholarship to local LGBTQ+ young adults. The students become eligible for the scholarship by attending events through our mentorship program, which includes community involvement, volunteering, and personal/academic mentoring.
