American Express welcomes you to a reception honoring two of the nation’s most impactful social change leaders, both established and emerging. You’ll hear from the winner of the American Express NGen Leadership Award — revealed live at the event — as well as Sherry Salway Black, recipient of the 2019 John W. Gardner Leadership Award and a lifelong leader on Native American issues.

With wine, beer, passed hors d’oeuvres, and cultural entertainment from the American Indian Center, this is an evening you won’t want to miss!

Additional support for the Gardner Leadership Award is provided by the National Indian Child Welfare Association and First Nations Development Institute in honor of Sherry Salway Black and her service to the community.
