Event Details

Ready for a one-day virtual extravaganza?

In partnership with The BASE, our Black Excellence Conference will be taking place on Friday, March 18 starting at 10 a.m. EST.

The theme this year is wealth, understanding what various forms of wealth (financial, family, career success, well-being, etc.) mean to you and how to tap into it.

This conference will kick off with a spoken word artist session and will feature a virtual vendor market of local Black-owned businesses that you can visit between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m.

But wait, there’s more!

Join us back at 7 p.m. EST for an interview with the one and only actress, singer, and television star, Keke Palmer followed by a live student Q&A!

Plus, during the event you’ll have the chance to attend sessions and interact with vendors to earn points towards winning $50 gift certificates to the local Black-owned businesses at the event.

And, did we mention? Attendees will receive an awesome cap designed by Gerda Boateng, a renowned Black artist based in Toronto!
