Overview

The Honors Symposium introduces The ELC’s scholarship recipients to a wide range of business-related careers and industries to increase the number of future Black business leaders. Our goal is to help fill the pipeline of Black corporate executives from the classroom to the boardroom.

Newly selected ELC Scholars are expected to participate in the Honors Symposium. ELC Scholar Alumni are also invited to rejoin the leadership development series.

Here’s what Scholars can expect:

  • A series of professional development seminars and keynote sessions featuring notable business and community leaders.
  • Networking opportunities with other ELC Scholars as well as ELC members, senior-level executives, and other prominent global Black business leaders.
  • Opportunities to attend impactful sessions led by Black leaders. These “for us, by us” conversations focus on navigating the corporate world as Black professionals.
