Category: Derby Diversity & Business Summit


The mission of the Derby Diversity Business Summit (DDBS) is to drive innovative strategies to attract diverse consumers while promoting the utilization of best in class diverse business leaders within the Executive Workforce and Global Supply Chain and Sports.


DDBS has an international draw and exists to bring together the world’s top, diverse suppliers and executives - inclusive of ALL diverse groups (Minority, Women, LGBTQ, Veteran & Disabled) on a national scale to network, develop and enjoy the Derby.

A portion of the 2021 proceeds will be donated to GEDDI in support of black owned businesses. Learn more about GEDDI by clicking here.

By attending, guests will have the ability to participate in development seminars, panel discussions, and even hear from highly sought after speakers to share their experiences in the business world of Supplier Diversity & Diversity and Inclusion. Along with networking opportunities that will be available at the business sessions, guests will also have the chance to attend A-List celebrity events and the derby festivities with peers!


To accomplish our mission, each year, we host a Business Summit with the nation’s elite and diverse business leaders in Louisville, Kentucky, to create intersectional accessibility. We take a portion of the proceeds and identify projects in which we can provide funding that supports education, business development, and training initiatives for organizations committed to the advancement of Diverse Business Owners & Executives.
