The Inclusion Network, a nonprofit organization that promotes the inclusion of people with disabilities in all aspects of life, had its ninth annual Leadership Awards at the Albert B. Sabin Cincinnati Convention Center, downtown. More than 1,000 guests attended the event, honoring those in the community who believe in inclusion and engage in inclusive practices.

The evening included cocktails and dinner and performances by the Mistics and the WOW dancers of the Miracle Dance Theatre. Emcee was Channel 5's Dave Wagner. Featured speaker was Danny Woodburn, best known for his Seinfeld character, Mickey Abbott, friend of Kramer.

The Inclusion Network surprised former board member Bea Lampkin by presenting her with its "Outstanding Service to the Community" Spotlight Award.
