Denver, CO. (PRWEB) May 06, 2013
GlobaLinks Learning Abroad, a leading provider of study abroad programs across the globe promoting academic, cultural, personal, professional, and social discovery, is honored to be named one of the top three minority/women-owned businesses in Colorado by the Denver Metro Chamber of Commerce. The honorees were selected from dozens of nominations and underwent an extensive review process by the Denver Metro Chamber of Commerce, a business leadership organization with a statewide focus that advocates for more than 3,000 businesses and their 300,000 employees.
The top three businesses in the minority/women-owned category, along with five other categories, were honored April 26 in Denver at a business awards luncheon titled “18 Stories” featuring video montages of the 18 selected businesses and nonprofit organizations.
“It is truly an honor to be recognized as one of the top businesses in Colorado,” said Cynthia Banks, executive director and CEO of GlobaLinks Learning Abroad. “Our company is proud to have contributed to the Colorado economy for 23 years as an international business with a mission to change the world through international education.”
GlobaLinks Learning Abroad is ranked 11th in the 2013 listing of the largest women-owned businesses in Colorado by ColoradoBIZ Magazine, and consistently ranks among the top 20 in the publication’s annual survey. The Colorado Women’s Chamber of Commerce in 2009 named GlobaLinks Learning Abroad its Small Company of the Year.
The Denver Metro Chamber of Commerce will highlight the work of this year’s honorees on its Wall of Fame. Kelly Brough, president and CEO of the Denver Metro Chamber of Commerce, told the luncheon audience, “The companies today have shown how they took really cool ideas and brought them to our community.”
