Walker’s Legacy is proud to present its Men Who Enterprise Digital Summit, a one-day virtual Q & A style conversation discussing tools and strategies to provide Black men with resources and networks needed to be successful in entrepreneurial endeavors despite COVID-19.

The Men Who Enterprise Digital Summit, scheduled for Friday, October 30th, 2020 from 10 am - 3 pm EST, is designed for men who navigate the business and professional landscape often without mentorship and will feature notable Black men across various industries as guest speakers.

“For the last ten (10) years Walker’s Legacy has aggressively sought ways to improve professional and entrepreneurial outcomes for women. In hearing feedback from our male colleagues, we recognized that many men of color lack access to similar supports and sought a community similar to what we have developed for women” said Natalie Madeira Cofield, Founder & CEO of Walker’s Legacy. “We are proud to launch Men Who Enterprise as a much needed vertical to our work to empower communities of color and look forward to providing this male initiative to help men navigate, prepare, and gain inspiration and insight during these unprecedented times.”

The Men Who Enterprise Digital Summit will cover topics such as: Leadership in Corporate America, Financial Wealth-building and Planning, Entrepreneurs and Content Creators, Education and Workforce Development, Entrepreneurship Eco-Systems to Support Black Entrepreneurs, and Tech Innovators.
