There are six awards in total, 5 honorees and one Lifetime Award recipient, recognizing this year's top influencers for their significant contributions to changing the global landscape for inclusion in STEM innovation.

Up to 100 guests are expected to attend the red-carpet ceremony, to be hosted at Ben's Next Door, the upscale sister restaurant to Washington, DC's iconic Ben's Chili Bowl. The event program includes a networking reception, an awards show, important announcements, and a keynote speech delivered by Thierry Lindor, Founder of Influence Orbis. Presented by WealthyLife CEO Angel Rich, guests will be treated to live performances, honorary recognitions, and great food. Tickets are now available for $25 at

Honorees were chosen for their significant impacts on changing the global black tech community.

The Influencer Awards Show comes at an important time, on Giving Tuesday - a global day of giving through the power of social media and collaboration. Presented on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving #GivingTuesday has become an advocate for giving back and philanthropy.

As the show's honorees have given back to the community, #BlackTechMatters aspires to do the same.
