Our Purpose and Mission 

The Namaste Gala is hosted by a group of local businessmen who aspire to create an evening that highlights continued excellence by minorities within the Nashville business community. The purpose for this gala is to encourage and help develop strategic alliances across all sectors of the Nashville business ecosystem, as well as increasing support for philanthropic efforts, particularly those impacting underserved communities. Our enduring mission is to inspire both young and emerging business leaders, alike, by providing a forum that recognizes, honors, and celebrates contributions and achievements of African American professionals.
