The Black Leadership Summit is a one-day conference that includes a plenary session, breakout, and panel discussion. Topics include leadership and business development, financial literacy, education innovation, mental and behavioral health, building the nuclear family, and more. This event is targeted at small business executives and young and aspiring leaders. This year’s theme is “Unleashing Inner Your Potential”. The keynote speaker for this year’s event is Yvette Miley, Senior VP, of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion of NBCUniversal News Group. Our goal is to deliver meaningful educational and engaging sessions focused on overcoming barriers faced in the Black community. Additionally, the summit will include a Black History Month Awards Luncheon, featuring guest speakers, music performances, and awards recognizing and honoring leaders in our community. Part proceeds from the Black Leadership Summit will provide scholarships or grants for Palm Beach County students and young adults.
