Annual Gala

The Executive Leadership Council's (ELC) Annual Recognition Gala is held each Fall and supports the charitable endeavors of The ELC.

The ELC's 2019 Recognition Gala will take place on October 10, 2019 at the Marriott Marquis in Washington, DC.

More than 2,000 guests, including many of corporate America’s leading CEOs and senior executives, thought leaders and politicos, join ELC members to honor individuals and corporations for their support of diversity, inclusion and achievement in business. We pay tribute to our honorees, scholarship winners and the legacy of our 19 visionary founders by celebrating significant accomplishments and pledging our commitment to develop future global black leaders.
