Event description

Description

The 2020 HBCUgrow LEAD Conference & Awards is here! This year's theme: The Intersection of Business and Education. This forum will bring together leadership from HBCUs and MSIs to engage with corporate diversity, inclusion and equity leaders.

This year's HBCUgrow LEAD Conference & Awards will be held on April 7 in Richmond. We thank Virginia Union University for offering to host the event at their beautiful Living & Learning Center!

Here's the agenda:

8:15 - 9a Registration

9:00 - 10:10a Welcome and Building Equity & Business Partnerships (Keynote)

It seems as if everyone has a diversity and inclusion policy today, but how many are truly effective? Join us as we hear from a leader whose company has built a program that is truly working. You'll leave today understanding more about how you can build strong partnerships that lead to true equity.

10:20 - 11:20a Business Panel

Ask questions of our business panelists on what has worked (and what hasn't) for their diversity and inclusion programs. They will field your questions on how they have achieved success and what the future looks like.

11:30a - 12:30p Presidential Panel

The Presidential Panel – a conference favorite – is back! Every college and university wants to see its students graduate and have a successful career. Hear how Presidents are addressing equity challenges and building corporate partnerships in the ever-changing HBCU higher-ed environment. Schools and businesses are invited to ask questions and share their needs and expectations.

12:30 - 2:30p Luncheon & 2020 LEAD Awards

Join us for lunch and help us celebrate the 2020 LEAD Awards! We'll have some talented musicians from Virginia Union University while we enjoy a plated luncheon, then you will find out who the winners are for this year's LEAD Awards. Awards are chosen based on input from the public and our judges panel. Be the first to see and congratulate the winners for:

  • LEAD Innovation
  • LEAD Marketing
  • LEAD Website
  • LEAD Military-Friendly
  • Best Leadership

Learn about sponsorship opportunities!
