Honors Symposium

October 3-6, 2023

The ELC Honors Symposium is a multi-day professional development experience consisting of a series of workshops and meetings that prepare ELC Scholars to contribute their talents in the workplace effectively.

This event is open to ELC Scholars, ELC Members and corporate scholarship sponsors.


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.

What to Expect

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 powerful sessions facilitated by Black leaders. These are “for us, by us” conversations about navigating the corporate world as Black leaders.
