CULTIVATING CONNECTIONS IN THE FACE
OF COVID-19

CBE promotes our mission of building, promoting, and inspiring Black professionals by elevating our voices and amplifying our impact at CBE Week. Few conferences bring together Black professionals across sectors to collaborate, exchange ideas, and network from the best and brightest across multiple industries.

Each year CBE identifies topics across multiple tracks and focuses on issues that relate to the Black community across each track. Attendees have the opportunity to curate their conference experience. Our hope is that you will build bridges across other professions and learn about key industry developments outside of your own.
