CBE provides a much needed platform and space for Black professionals in the Bay Area and byeond. It gives us the opportunity to come together, learn from each other, and to celebrate our accomplishments collectively. CBEWeek is such an uplifting time for the community and I am excited to lend my hand to support the team this year!
