WHAT IS BLACK THINK?
The National Black MBA Association® launched the “Black Think” Symposium at the 2017 Annual Conference and Exposition as an executive roundtable. The Black Think symposium addresses issues that are pertinent to professionals and entrepreneurs. The symposium assembles key influencers and stakeholders from across sectors to inspire collaboration, inform the development of public-private partnerships. The primary goal of each conversation is to utilize insights gathered to develop a set of national recommendations in five impact areas: Education, Corporate, Policy/Legislation, Community Organizations and Mentorship.
WHY IS BLACK THINK IMPORTANT?
The Black community continues to face a host of challenges even with the progress that has been made throughout the years. There are many economic, social and political obstacles that must be addressed through gathering the most relevant leaders to not only provide key insight but also to identify viable, actionable solutions. The Black Think symposium brings the right people together to create dynamic and inspiring thought leadership around key topics that continue to afflict the Black community.
