Vice President Kamala Harris Opens Week with Marc Morial, NUL CEO

The National Urban League (NUL) 2021 Conference kicked off Tuesday with Vice President Kamala Harris joining NUL President/CEO Marc Morial for the start of the four-day virtual event.

The conference continues free of charge for the first time ever through Friday, Oct. 1.

As the country struggles to emerge from the triple pandemics of COVID-19, systemic racism and economic turmoil, the conference will focus on eliminating disparities and expanding opportunities with each day focusing on a different theme where examples of social and economic innovation will be demonstrated.

Daily themes include:

Tuesday: Empowerment Day (opening day) — dedicated to galvanizing the Urban League Movement and our allies to meet the challenges of COVID and structural inequity, police brutality and the most virulent attacks on voting rights since Reconstruction.

Wednesday: Career & Professional Development Day — features a forward-looking slate of workshops tailored to enhanced job success and economic independence.

Thursday: Small Business Matters/Entrepreneurship Day — In recognition of the role of Black-owned businesses to African-American independence, the critical period of challenge and the transformation they are facing.

Friday: TechConnect & Get Funded Friday — a fresh lineup of information-packed sessions and a pitch competition for creatives in the tech field ready to monetize their next great idea.

More: The Urban League NOW: Experience & Expo features the Health & Wellness Space, TechConnect, H.E.R. Space, KINGS Corner, Community “Give-Back” Corner, and the Brilliant & Black-Owned Marketplace. And top-notch entertainment will be a part of each day of the conference.
