Operation HOPE Founder, Chairman & CEO John Hope Bryant Receives Atlanta Business Chronicle’s “Outstanding Voice” Award for Commitment to Diversity & Inclusion in Business

Bryant honored with “Outstanding Voice” Award for advocacy and impact in advancing equality among diverse communities nationwide.

ATLANTA, Sept. 13, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — The Atlanta Business Chronicle announced that Operation HOPE Chairman, Founder, and CEO John Hope Bryant will receive the 2023 ‘Outstanding Voice’ Award during its Annual DEI Awards.

The Atlanta Business Chronicle’s DEI Awards recognize the outstanding organizations and individuals in metro Atlanta who bolster equality across all areas of diversity including age, disability, gender, sexual orientation, race and religion. This year’s event will take place on November 9, 2023 at Venue 42 West in Atlanta, GA.

John Hope Bryant is the Founder, Chairman, and CEO of Atlanta-based Operation HOPE, Inc., a leading national nonprofit dedicated to financial literacy and economic empowerment. Since its inception in 1992, Operation HOPE has served over 4 million people and directed nearly $4 billion in economic activity into disenfranchised communities.

Recently, Operation HOPE was also named to Atlanta Business Chronicle’s prestigious “Pacesetters” list of Fastest Growing Companies, ranking 42 out of 100. This is the second consecutive year Operation HOPE earned its place on the list of companies spanning various sectors.

“Using my voice and empowering others has been a theme of my life’s work,” said Operation HOPE Chairman, Founder, and CEO. “I am honored to be recognized by The Atlanta Business Chronicle for my work to improve equality for all, ” Bryant added, “I look forward to celebrating among Atlanta’s great allies and advocates as we continue the collaborative work that makes our communities better today—as well as for generations to come.”

In addition to founding Operation HOPE, Bryant is the Chairman, and CEO of Bryant Group Ventures and Principal of The Promise Homes Company, which is the largest minority-controlled owner of single-family rental homes in the United States. Bryant has served as a member of the President’s Advisory Council on Financial Literacy under President George W. Bush and President Barack Obama. At the recommendation of Mr. Bryant, U.S. Treasury Secretary Jack Lew renamed the former U.S. Treasury Annex Building the Freedman’s Bank Building.

Operation HOPE’s mission promotes social justice through an economic lens. Today, the organization continues to experience significant growth with a focus on providing resources to historically underserved communities. With more than 230 ‘HOPE Inside’ locations across the country, HOPE’s team of certified coaches supports a diverse group of clients through initiatives to help improve financial wellness, increase homeownership and build small businesses.
