Annual Gala 2023

The ISB Gala 2023 is a Community Celebration

As a conveyor of togetherness, the ISB annual gala is a community-wide gathering of remarkable leaders in every part of our society, from business to civil rights, from education to the arts.  More than 500 leaders from Atlanta’s faith, business, civic and nonprofit sectors attend the ISB Gala to celebrate the Muslim community’s contributions as well as showcase ISB’s efforts to battle bigotry through education and engagement.

Join the Islamic Speakers Bureau of Atlanta for an inspirational evening celebrating leaders and corporations who are making our Atlanta community better through diversity and inclusion. We will be honoring Georgia Pacific, Curley Dossman, President Georgia Pacific Foundation, and former Mayor of Atlanta Shirley Franklin. We look forward to hosting you all to celebrate their stellar achievements when WSB’s Condace Pressley serves as Emcee at ISB’s 2023 Annual gala!

Meet our Emcee

Condace Pressley is an award-winning journalist, morning personality and 2016 inductee into the Georgia Radio Hall of Fame. Many in Atlanta are familiar with her voice as reporter/anchor on KISS 104.1 and on News 95.5 and AM750 WSB. She is the producer and host of the Sunday public affairs program ‘Perspectives.’


Join Us!

The Gala provides crucial financial support for our programs that further the ISB’s efforts to foster relationships and promote religious understanding.  Please join us by becoming a sponsor for the 2023 ISB Gala when we will celebrate Atlanta’s leaders who have made the creation of a more diverse and inclusive community a reality
