The Women’s Business Center at the Salt Lake Chamber has been awarded the Utah Martin Luther King, Jr. Human Rights Commission’s 2003 Drum Major Award. Dr. King challenged us all to be "drum majors for justice, drum majors for peace, and drum majors for righteousness." To qualify for the Drum Major award, organizations must demonstrate "Unity Through Diversity. " The award was presented to the Women's Business Center last Friday. The Center conducts programs that encourage diversity. The Center offers a mentoring program for women business owners and counsels women and men in becoming certified as a minority-owned business. In addition to the Women’s Business Center, the Commission recognized FannieMae, the US Small Business Administration (which is also a partner in the Women’s Business Center) and the Salt Lake County, Division of Personnel, Office of the Mayor.
