Over the past eleven years the Oliver Empowerment and Transformation Awards has recognised and celebrated South Africa's black economic empowerment champions. The Oliver's is the country's most influential black awards ceremony, recognising leadership and innovation in black empowerment. The Oliver's celebrates companies and individuals in the public and private sectors that are excelling in their initiatives driving job creation, entrepreneurship and enterprise development.

Transformation is not simply a moral initiative to redress the wrongs of the past and its political connotations, rather it is a pragmatic growth strategy that aims to realise the country's full economic potential while helping to bring the black majority into the economic mainstream.
