The Black Professional Summit is a catalyst for professional development in South Florida. The summit provides a medium that merges experienced black professionals with passionate and energetic post-secondary students, resulting in a continuum of professional and leadership development central to the growth and the betterment of our South Florida community.

Last year’s inaugural Black Professional Summit provided young professionals with insight on maximizing their career and wealth-building goals and equipped students with the tools to transition from college to professional life. More than 200 entry- and mid-level professionals as well as college students attended workshops and expanded their networks.

Black Professionals Summit 2015: Building Leaders and Legacies is an informative and empowering day of learning and capacity-building for anyone seeking to expand their career profile. The goal of the summit is to ensure that entry and mid-level professionals in South Florida are well-equipped with the right information and resources to succeed here at home.

On September 12th, 2015, Bill Diggs will keynote the event. Bill is the President of the Mourning Family Foundation (MFF). The MFF is a conglomerate of non-profits and for-profit companies that are owned by Alonzo and Tracy Mourning. In Bill’s role, he is responsible for three subsidiaries under MFF. He has fiscal, developmental, and administrative responsibility for this enterprise. Prior to his current role, Bill served as the President/Chief Executive Officer of the Miami-Dade Chamber of Commerce.

Sponsors for the 2015 Black Professionals Summit include Florida International University’s Alumni Association, Hudson Robillard & Co – Certified Public Accountants, FIU Black Student Union, and Young Professionals Network – Miami.

We welcome the participation of bloggers, writers, producers, reporters, and content curators to experience this incredible event!
