The Central Ohio Champions Of Diversity Awards


Over the past 7 years, The Central Ohio Champions of Diversity Awards has worked in  partnership with The Columbus Hispanic Chamber of Commerce,  Ohio Conference NAACP and the Columbus Chapter of the NAACP to  bring ALL Diverse communities together to celebrate our accomplishments and dedication to  diversity. The Central Ohio Champions of Diversity Awards is proud to be the only diversity  awards program in Central Ohio that recognizes the diverse efforts of individuals and  corporations. Created by Ohio publishing legend, Amos H.
