The Wharton School's African American MBA Association (AAMBAA) cordially invites you to The 42nd Annual Whitney M. Young, Jr. Memorial Conference taking place on November 6-7 at The Ritz-Carlton, Philadelphia.

Creating Impact in Business and Society
The theme for this year's conference is "The New Black: Creating Impact in Business and Society". Our theme reflects the complexity of our time; African Americans have made unprecedented strides in business and politics, yet there are only 5 African American CEO's at the helm of Fortune 500 companies as well as a seemingly endless stream of unprosecuted occurrences of police brutality. 2015 has left us with a preponderance of evidence reminding us that we do not yet live in a post-racial America, and that Whitney M. Young, Jr.'s work is just as relevant now as it was during the Civil Rights Era. This year's conference will highlight a range of social, political and economic issues facing the African American community, including, but not limited to, the tech divide in Silicon Valley and the impact of urban development on lower-income communities. Our hope is that attendees leave with a wealth of information to not only apply to their own careers but also to their own communities and continue the efforts that Mr. Young started years ago.
