A 2-DAY SUMMIT WITH DYNAMIC SPEAKERS ACROSS SECTORS

CBE is excited to announce that it will adding a 2-day Summit to CBEWeek 2019!

The goal of the summit is to ensure that Black professionals are engaging with a variety of professionals, making their overall educational and networking experience well-rounded. There are few conferences or events that bring together Black professionals across sectors to collaborate, exchange ideas, and learn from the best and brightest across multiple industries.

You'll have the opportunity to do everything from pitch your business ideas to talk to health professionals. We are bringing in dynamic speakers across six tracks:

  • Technology & Life Sciences

  • Music, Art & Entertainment

  • Finance & Entrepreneurship

  • Government & Legal

  • Health & Wellbeing

  • Education & Social Impact.

The tracks will have topics that fall into four themes:

  • Hear from Experts

  • Build Your Career

  • Advance Your Business

  • Impact Our Community

You'll have the opportunity to pick and choose topics that are most interesting to you. Our hope is that you will build bridges across other professions and learn about key industry developments outside of your own.
