Byron Allen will be one of the featured speakers at the Black Enterprise Entrepreneurs Summit (virtual) which takes place on November 12-13, 2020.

Months of protests against police brutality and systemic racism shook the world. As a result, corporate America has been compelled to respond to the nation’s history of racial inequities with statements, investments and diversity initiatives.
