Theme: "Prevailing Through Change"

Change is a happening all around us. Electric vehicles, artificial intelligence, big data, another presidential election, even the threat of an impending recession...the list is never-ending. As we've seen before, we know is not enough to simply be aware of change. We must adapt to change so that we are able to prevail as a people and a culture. 

At the 46th annual Whitney M. Young Conference, we will explore best practices from experts in the public, private and social sectors that match the unique needs of Black America. It is our hope that you leave this conference with the tools and strategies to further the prosperity of Black America as a member or an ally.
