Couple on Red Carpet


In Nebraska, we mostly recognize young professionals under 40 years old. At The Bloc, we wondered why? This led to the idea to formally recognize the top achievers over 40 years of age as part of our diversity and inclusion efforts. A year after our founding, with an immense amount of detailed planning and meaningful collaboration, that idea is materializing into our first 50 OVER 50 NE Awards ceremony.


2020 came with challenges, but we have never lost sight of our values and mission. We are proud of the work we do in the community and are looking forward to what the future holds.
