Save the Date! L.E.G.A.C.Y. 2022 will be Saturday, February 26, 2022

Historically, the contributions of Black entrepreneurs often go left under celebrated and unnoticed. The L.E.G.A.C.Y. Awards Gala, powered by WDB Marketing, is taking action to change that! This year, the 2022 L.E.G.A.C.Y. Awards Gala will be focused on celebrating the positive impact Black Owned Businesses make every day in the communities they serve. Black entrepreneurs have been the backbone of our economy for decades, contributing greatly to job creation, business leadership, and positive economic impact for growth in deserving communities.

Why do we host the WDB L.E.G.A.C.Y. Awards?

WDB Marketing is a fully Black Owned and Operated print and marketing firm, dedicated to building the brands of Black Small Businesses daily. As fellow entrepreneurs, we understand the celebratory moments of triumph and victory you experience as Black business owner. A lot of times, those moments and stages go uncelebrated and unacknowledged.

The WDB L.E.G.A.C.Y. Awards Gala, hosted by WDB Marketing, was designed with the Black small business owner and professional in mind, who deserves a night of celebration and acknowledgement. We believe good business is founded on a solid foundation of good relationships. The WDB L.E.G.A.C.Y. Awards Gala provides event attendees with collaborative business networking opportunities that positively impact the overall growth of our attending entrepreneurs.

Since 2015, The WDB L.E.G.A.C.Y. Awards Gala has celebrated black business excellence in the area of 7 categories: (L)eadership, (E)ducation, (G)rowth, (A)dvocacy, (C)ommunity, and (Y)oung Entrepreneur, and the overall L.E.G.A.C.Y. Award.
