The Presidents’ Council 2017 Annual Conference- Honoring the Past, Inspiring the Future welcomes all who share in our mission of closing the gaps (lending, education, healthcare) to African American business owners and providing economic opportunities to the communities and neighborhoods they serve; those with a shared passion for and understanding of the issues and needs of African American business owners; and those who actively seek progress in removing barriers linked to those challenges.
Working with community partners, this event seeks to better integrate sustainability efforts into our daily actions and to remove barriers to inclusion by unlocking the collaborative power of business, government and civil society.
Knowing we are only as strong as the community that surrounds us, it is clear that in the years and decades ahead, collaborative solutions, in which we all play our role, hold the key to meaningful and lasting progress. Simply put, we need cooperation at all levels to position African American businesses for sustainable long-term growth and contribute to solving the broader challenges that impact each and every one of us.
Our founding was rooted in solving challenges unique to the African American business community by leveraging relationships and resources to grow businesses as leaders and investors in their own success. We continue our unwavering commitment to inspire, drive innovation, thought leadership and African American sustainability through entrepreneurship and investment.
Like Stokes, we allow our very life to be a reflection of what we are called to do!
