Whitney M. Young Jr.

Memorial Conference

Presented by JPMorgan Chase & Co. in partnership with Advancing Black Pathways

WHITNEY M. YOUNG JR. MEMORIAL CONFERENCE

The Business of Black Power: Amplifying our Collective Voice

The Black Power Movement emerged in the late 1960s as a crusade for Black liberation. Generations of systemic racism inspired a groundbreaking revolution that transcended cultural, political and socio-economic spheres. While individually we are senior executives, community organizers, and innovators, history continues to teach us that our individual accomplishments alone are not enough to offset the impact of being a historically-excluded group. Our power is maximized when we unite as a collective. The 48th Annual Whitney M. Young Jr. Memorial Conference will pay homage to the movement that inspired a sense of self-determination and empowerment in the Black community. The Business of Black Power: Amplifying our Collective Voice will highlight the responsibility of today’s business leaders in the continued fight for Black liberation and explore the pathways to strategically unite our voices.

At the WMY conference, prominent business and civic leaders present their perspectives on pertinent trends disrupting a breadth of industries and functional areas, driving thoughtful dialogue on how to champion innovation with mature enterprises, new ventures, and personal endeavors.

This year, we are excited to unveil the Small Business Series and continue the New Venture Competition, both of which are designed to highlight, empower, and support Black professionals engaged in innovation.
