F.U.N. - Fierce Urgency of Now: Energizing Young Professionals of Color to Unlock Boston’s Promise

About this Event

What is the Fierce Urgency of Now Festival?

A five-day series of events hosted by local businesses and organizations geared at highlighting the experiences, challenges, and opportunities for young professionals of color in our city with the ultimate goal of creating community.

With more than 30 events scheduled, you can plan to learn, connect, and have fun all week long, while also lending your voice to change. Join us September 4-8 to help make Boston more inclusive for all.


What is Afrobeat Fit?

Afrobeat Fit hosts inclusive Sweat Sessions where music and movement derive the late and great artists and influencers of Africa!

Since 2016, Afrobeat Fit has hosted over 300 Sweat Sessions in various metro cities in the United States and Panama! Our most notable clients include P&G Gillette Headquarters, Harvard University, Black Health Matters Conference, and UConn, to name a few.



Why are we involved in F.U.N.?

With half of the workforce in Boston being classified as millennials, and nearly half of millennials in Greater Boston being people of color, we know that the business community must play a key role in improving the city’s image and increasing access and opportunities to attract and retain talent. Retention of young people of color is of critical importance to our future as a region.
