25th Anniversary Celebration


Celebrating 25 Years

We are celebrating 25 years of accelerating students’ careers and growing businesses owned by people of color, women, and other under-served individuals and creating jobs in communities where they are needed the most. This work has led to more than $250 million in new revenues and more than 250,000 jobs in underserved communities. To celebrate these impacts and continue our work of providing pathways to economic prosperity, we’re launching a 25th Anniversary Celebration Fundraising Campaign. Through digital storytelling we will highlight the achievements of the Center’s students, alumni, businesses, and partners. The celebration will conclude with the 2020 UW Impact Awards on December 3rd from 5pm – 6:30pm – recognizing business, civic, and student leaders who are committed to diversity, equity, and inclusion in business.
