DC EVENT: Dialogue on Diversity Selects Jewelry Designer Evelyn Brooks As Young Entrepreneur

Local Peruvian-American Jewelry Designer Evelyn Brooks has been selected to receive the award for Young Entrepreneur by Dialogue on Diversity at their annual Entrepreneurship/IT Conference.

The conference and award ceremony will be held at the Capitol Visitor’s Center on July 27th, 2010 from 8:30 am to 4:30 pm followed by a dinner from 5 to 6:30 pm. Dialogue on Diversity collaborates with the U.S. Small Business Administration to hold the conference which is entitled, Shining the Light on a Networked World: Innovative Technology – Security and Consumer Rights.

Several workshops are to be held covering topics such as marketing and supplier diversity, wireless telecommunications and other enterprise-relevant developments on the IT front.

Award-winning designer Evelyn Brooks states, “It’s an honor to receive such an award. Especially with the celebration of Peruvian Independence Day occurring the day after the conference, the award really hits home. It’s a sign of the dedication and hard work that has gone into making Evelyn Brooks Designs what it is. Its great that so many events are going on while we celebrate Peruvian Independence Day.”

Evelyn Brooks has been a local hit winning awards such as Fashion Chamber Choice Award and Entrepreneur on the Rise Award. She has also been awarded titles such as Proud to be Peruvian 2010 and Best of Peru in DC.

President of Dialogue on Diversity, Ma. Cristina Caballero said, "This year celebrates the vitality of the country’s small business sector, as these enterprises, a large proportion of them women-owned, pull their weight as the economic networks start into motion, drawing a dynamic society out of the economic slump it has been suffering for two anguished years. Their dynamic and innovative spirit goes far in imparting the saving resilience to the country’s economic apparatus."
