The National Society of Black Engineers (NSBE) will be hosting a virtual ALL IN Summit to help businesses learn how they can deliver on their commitment to drive real change for the Black community.
The summit will take place from 6:00 pm to 7:30 pm (EST), on Wednesday, November 18, 2020. It is designed to help companies that issued statements and pledged support for social justice following the killings of Ahmaud Arbery, Breonna Taylor and George Floyd, learn about scalable programs that the group says are proven to deliver actionable, measurable corporate initiatives.
Attendees will learn about:
- Funding to help NSBE build out its infrastructure, diversify its member support services, and amplify its impact to meet the goal of graduating 10,000 Black engineers annually by 2025.
- Supporting the NSBE Summer Engineering Experience for Kids (SEEK), which targets underrepresented 7 to 11-year-olds across the country.
- Scaling up 500 new NSBE JR. chapters to help students of color from 3rd to 12th grades discover firsthand how engineering and technology relate to the world around them.
- Increasing the reach and scale of the NSBE Career Academy to provide critical “soft skills” for new entrants into the workforce and beyond.
