About Global Merit & Essence Awards Network Inc. (GMEAN)
GMEAN is a group of talented entrepreneurs and advocates, who, through partnership and collaboration, support the underserved and marginalized communities, around the world – one community at a time!
We work with organizations in global communities, collaborating and partnering with them through their local businesses, and educational and social programs that target vulnerable and marginalized youth, seniors, veterans and visible minorities (including the disabled).
GMEAN also produces the Women of Essence Global Awards, an annual appreciation gala that highlights women who are making a difference in their local communities. Additionally, GMEAN is responsible for the Women in Bloom International Summits; Contemporary Batik Arts Workshops for youth, and other socially driven programs.
Get to know us and you will discover that we are “more than just an awards show”
