[Virtual] Inspiring Excellence

Honoring the Resiliency of Small to Mid-size Businesses

Thursday, November 19, 2020
11:00 AM – 12:00 PM

Pre-registration for this program has closed. You can access the livestream using walk-in registration via inspiringexcellence.chamberphl.com.

As an extension and virtual reimagination of our annual Excellence Awards, Inspiring Excellence shines spotlights on the small and mid-size businesses who have made a difference in our community during these unprecedented times. With input from the Excellence Awards Committee, the Chamber chose 10 organizations to recognize whose stories have inspired our members, such as manufacturers shifting their production lines to produce PPE; agencies offering pro-bono services to minority-owned businesses to raise diverse voices in the community; employees coming together to donate to health care workers; and so on.

Join us for an exciting conversation and celebration with these small and mid-size businesses who have gone above and beyond their standard operations to support our region in this time of need.
