Congratulations to PHL Diversity, DVLF's 2017 Business Hero
About PHL Diversity
PHL Diversity (a business development division of the Philadelphia Convention and Visitors Bureau) - PHL Diversity, formerly the Philadelphia Multicultural Affairs Congress (MAC), was founded in 1987 as a division of the Philadelphia Convention and Visitors Bureau to help attract more multicultural visitors to the city. Now, PHL Diversity continues to work to increase Philadelphia's share of the multicultural meetings and tourism markets. PHL Diversity maximizes opportunities for the region by promoting Philadelphia as an ethically diverse visitor destination. By encouraging multicultural business and social responsibility, PHL Diversity helps the city's varying multicultural communities benefit from the hospitality and tourism industries. In the past year, PHL Diversity has shown a commitment to the LGBT community and has brought the National LGBTQ Task Force; Out and Equal; the Gay and Lesbian Medical Association; and the National Gay and Lesbian Journalists Association all to Philadelphia.
HEROES was started 11 years ago to honor individuals whose work and leadership advance the rights of the LGBT community. Through the nomination process we seek to identify youth, adults, non-profits, straight-allies & businesses who have bold ideas, act with selfless intention, are admired for their integrity, and are regarded as courageous in advancing the equality of the lesbian, gay, bisexual, & transgender community in the Delaware Valley and beyond. DVLF honors these Heroes annually in celebration of their character & in encouragement of others to act heroically.
