No. The events and online resources we host are designed to target Black professionals, however, membership is open to all professionals in support of our Mission and Vision. We believe in, advocate for, and support all efforts to increase Diversity in Business.
According to our survey data, many Black professionals in South Florida find themselves isolated or one of a few in their workplaces and neighborhoods and feel disconnected from like-minded individuals with similar cultural and economic backgrounds.
Our Mission is to connect and engage them both offline and online. Our Vision is to serve as a gateway between our Network and South Florida’s business community at large.
No. Membership is free. We know professionals are busy people, so we’ve designed a network where there are no payments, complicated requirements or ongoing obligations.
