Long Island Business News, which has highlighted the outstanding achievements of business leaders of diverse ethnic backgrounds and those with disabilities who actively support the growth of diversity and equality in the Long Island community since 2016, has chosen to honor an Indian American businessman this year.

“I am truly honored to receive the Long Island Business News Diversity Award,” said Chauhan. “As we celebrate this day, it is so important to understand the importance of diversity both in and outside of the workplace.

Diversity is so important if we are to have a sustainable society and universe.”
