This year’s Inspire MD will feature a video welcome message from Governor Larry Hogan, who will provide remarks about COVID-19 response, recovery, and the role of the Maryland business community, as well as congratulating award winners.
We are pleased to announce the 2020 Maryland Business Hall of Fame inductees, Henry Posko and Dr. Redonda Miller!
Henry Posko, President and CEO, Humanim: Mr. Posko is a social entrepreneur committed to public service and developing organizations and programs supporting economic self-sufficiency, both locally and globally. For the last 35 years, he has served as the president and CEO of Humanim, a large nongovernmental organization (NGO) based in the Baltimore-Washington metro area that is focused on providing support programs, case management, and opportunities for economic independence for those who have encountered obstacles to work.
Redonda G. Miller, M.D., President, The Johns Hopkins Hospital: Dr. Miller is the first female president of The Johns Hopkins Hospital, and since her appointment in 2016, she has led successful efforts to expand the world-renowned hospital’s focus on high-value care, and to enhance safety and the patient experience. She’s been called a transformational leader and role model, gifted physician, and skilled communicator who bridges the delivery of health and the business of health with skill and grace.
We are pleased to announce the 2020 Inspire MD Award Winner, BGE! Their contributions to the community in 2020 set them apart as a standout company. From dedication to workforce development, as seen in their participation in the Maryland Chamber Foundation’s Teacher Externship Program, to setting an outstanding example of leadership in their field with their Civic Works and Smart Energy Workforce Development Programs, BGE truly exemplifies what the Inspire Maryland awards are all about.
Inspire Maryland is an event true to its name. An expansion of what was previously known as the Business Hall of Fame Awards, Inspire MD is a formal evening awards ceremony that honors exceptional business leaders and celebrates the unique ways they are strengthening Maryland.
Businesses—small, large, and in-between—drive this state, employ its residents, and power its economy. When our businesses thrive, so does our state—and making our state stronger is what we strive to do each day.
This year, our awards will acknowledge outstanding leaders and contributors to the Maryland business community and the community at large, as well as companies that are fueling the talent pipeline by providing training and tools for tomorrow’s leaders. While we were planning a wonderful evening at the MGM National Harbor, we will be celebrating these tremendous leaders during an hour-long virtual event to include the awards ceremony and a leadership panel hosted by AT&T and our three awardees.
The Maryland Chamber will honor recipients of the following 2020 Inspire MD Awards:
