The Spirit of Alliance Awards honors corporations', Minority Business Enterprises (MBEs) and supplier diversity advocates that are setting the standard for small business development and creating opportunities for minority-owned businesses in Georgia. The Georgia Minority Supplier Development Council (GMSDC) recognized supplier diversity champions at this year's 35th Spirit of Alliance Awards, held on August 25, at the Atlanta Marriott Marquis hotel and we are extremely proud to announce that WestRock received the following awards at the event:

Crystal Award – awarded to GMSDC corporate or government member partner that publicly demonstrates through their program, corporate spend, and aggressive procurement opportunities. The recipient of this award is selected exclusively by the GMSDC certified MBE's.

The George Lottier Rising Star Award - recognizes the GMSDC corporate member whose supplier diversity program is active for less than three years and has significantly impacted the growth of supplier diversity within their organization. A rising star corporation has also effectively taken proactive measures to advance and expand the presence and capacity of MBE's within their organization.

Congratulations to Keya Grant, supplier diversity manager, who heads WestRock's involvement with the GMSDC. We are proud that WestRock stands out as a leader in supplier diversity and are excited to see what this next year brings for our partnership with the GMSDC!
