Event Description:
BMI Conference: Diversity, Business and Entrepreneurship

The Ninth Annual CUNY BMI conference, Diversity, Business and Entrepreneurship will feature morning and early afternoon keynote lectures as well as morning and afternoon panel discussions.

Morning Keynote Speaker:
Terrie Williams, Principal/Founder, The Terrie Williams Agency; Author, Black Pain: It Just Looks Like We’re Not Hurting; and One of Ebony magazine’s “Power 150”

Early Afternoon Keynote Speaker:
Joshua DuBois, Principal/Founder, Values Partnerships; Former Director, White House Office of Faith-based and Neighborhood Partnerships

The general theme for our morning panel discussions will be focused on the history and ongoing quest for racial, ethnic and gender diversity in business and entrepreneurship throughout the nation.  We hope that the morning sessions will create a foundation for our afternoon panel discussions by providing a general historical background of the nation’s diverse history of entrepreneurship with a focus on the challenges and triumphs of African Americans building businesses and institutions under segregation.  Further, through several panel discussions, we hope to examine the entrepreneurial spirit of diverse peoples, especially in New York City, that has revitalized the nation’s urban centers with each successive generation. 

As for our afternoon panel discussions, we hope to explore contemporary issues related to business and entrepreneurship such as ongoing efforts to diversify corporate America; entrepreneurship, urban development and/or other job creation strategies; and the unfortunate declines in the number of African American students, particularly males, enrolling in the nation’s professional schools.
