The BRIDGE Awards bring together businesses large and small, who are like-minded in their conviction to offer equal employment opportunities and economic stability to the people of this region, regardless of their background.

This awards ceremony offers an opportunity for Bay Area leaders to share their knowledge and ideas, celebrate innovation and inclusivity, and learn new methods to help combat poverty and income inequality.
