The Black Professionals Expo began in 2016 as the Leadership Conference and Expo. In our fifth year, we are pivoting to this new format to accommodate the growth in attendance, reach and scope of the event. This new format will also allow us to:

  • Offer more sessions on a broader spectrum of topics.
  • Host, support and bring exposure to Black business owners.
  • Give companies an opportunity to build a database of more diverse job candidates with the skillsets they are looking for.
  • Connect the business and non-profit sectors to the large network of Black professionals that exist in Gainesville.
  • Allow for people of all backgrounds to network and connect in a positive atmosphere to gain insight into the Black perspective while building new opportunities, partnerships and friendships.
