Established in 2006 under the auspices of the Central Florida Chapter of the National Association of Women Business Owners (NAWBO), and the YaYa Network, the Beacon Awards quickly became the premiere annual event for recognizing the impact and importance of diversity in the Central Florida workplace. With the continued sponsorship of many partners and organizations, the Beacon Awards has adopted a new name and a broader mission, thus in January 2011, The Beacon Network, Inc.; an independent not-for-profit independent entity was formed. With membership open to anyone who shares our mission, vision, and values, The Beacon Network is a professional, multicultural organization guided by a committed Board of Directors representing diversity in the community we serve.
