The Columbus Urban League recognized Wednesday business in the community that are making an impact on diversity.

Wednesday marked the organization’s Empowerment Day event, which was held virtually.

Some of the companies recognized for leading the way on diversity and inclusion include Cardinal Health, OhioHealth and Nationwide.

Urban League President and CEO Stephanie Hightower said she is thankful for all the support. She said 2020 has been quite a year.

“No matter what 2020 brings, we can never disregard the people we’ve lost, the businesses that closed, and the collective trauma we’ve experienced. the lessons we learned can transform us forever,” Hightower said.

The Columbus Urban League has led Central Ohio’s racial and economic equality movement for more than a century.
