As a Black professional, staying ahead in your career requires continuous learning and networking. BYP Network’s upcoming US Leadership Summit, “Knowledge Is Power,” presents an exceptional opportunity for Black professionals to gain valuable insights, make meaningful connections, and advance their careers.

From equipping Black professionals to become leaders in their respective organizations and communities to changing the Black narrative, this is the go-to summit for Black professionals to advance their careers. 

The summits will take place in-person and virtually on May 19 in New York and May 26 in Atlanta. Each event will kick off from 12PM EDT and will last until evening, inclusive of a drinks reception. 

Here are three ways to unlock your career potential

  1. Understand Global Workforce Trends

The world is constantly evolving. Thus, there is a need for businesses and employees to adapt. Companies must create a workplace that embraces a global perspective, and having a global workforce means you have employees from different countries. 

To improve the labor pool, countries are improving their workforce development strategies. A diverse workforce involves your company in many facets and provides the foundation for building a strong, interconnected universal front.

79% of employees want to build relationships at an in-person event. An event like the upcoming US Summit gives attendees access to professionals worldwide. This will allow Black professionals to gain insights and knowledge into trends, best practices, and technologies in their respective fields. By connecting with individuals from various backgrounds and industries, Black professionals can expand their knowledge and acquire fresh perspectives to help them succeed in their careers. 

The summits will together cover critical topics, including:

  • Corporate America: How to get to the to Top
  • Changing The Black Narrative
  • Recession Proofing: How to Survive Through the Downturn
  • United Across Borders: Advancing Globally
  • Smashing the Glass Ceiling
  • Black Resistance in 2023
