For over four decades, the Wharton African American MBA Association (AAMBAA) has celebrated the legacy of a visionary leader and an avid advocate of equality and economic empowerment for all with the Whitney M. Young, Jr. Memorial conference. We invite prospective MBA students, professionals, alumni, and students of the Wharton School to relive this vision at the 41st annual Whitney M. Young, Jr. Conference held on December 5-6th in the city of Philadelphia.

The theme for this year’s conference, “The Handoff: Running with the Torch of Leadership”, continues the work of individuals such as Whitney M. Young to integrate underrepresented communities into the corporate and social environment. This conference provides opportunities to enhance necessary skill-sets and relevant perspectives on how future generations of business leaders can continue to burn the flame of excellence inherited from today’s leaders by providing a bold approach to leadership, economic empowerment, and career development.

This year, the conference will also honor the very distinguished Dr. Sybil Mobley. Dr. Mobley earned her MBA from The Wharton School in 1961. She then founded the School of Business and Industry at Florida A&M University in 1974. Dr. Mobley truly epitomizes the values and vision of Whitney M. Young, Jr.

We look forward to sharing this unique experience with you.

Join us at the 41st Annual Whitney M. Young, Jr. Memorial Conference!
