I truly believe that there is no limit to what can be achieved when Black professionals with varied experiences and expertise come together with one purpose of uplifting the community! CBE is a testament to just that. I’m honored to have the opportunity to volunteer alongside so many amazing Black professionals. My hope is that by bringing Black professionals and community organizers together to network, strategize, and highlight excellence in the Black community, we will not only inspire the next generation of Black leaders, but will help create an ecosystem of support within the Black community. My dream is for CBE to be the conduit for Black professionals to create an organic network of individuals who consistently work together to improve our diversity and inclusion practices in our communities, companies, and schools.
