On October 25th, meet Robert F. Smith, in conversation with Ying McGuire, on the Southern Communities Initiative, supporting Black-owned business growth and access to capital, real estate, and civil infrastructure.

DAY - 1: Meet the C-Suite.

Join our new CEO and President Ying McGuire, hosting senior executives from ExxonMobil, Walt Disney and Wells Fargo in a panel discussion on how the events of 2020 have catapulted the conversation about opportunities for minority businesses from procurement to the C-suite … and, how best to not only meet this unprecedented moment but capitalize on it.

DAY - 2: 
Meet U.S. Secretary of Transportation Pete Buttigieg.

Co-hosted by Rick Wade, senior vice president of strategic alliances and outreach, for the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, along with Ying McGuire, our Economic Summit will explore the $1.2 trillion 2021 infrastructure bill, which not only increases MBE spend across a wider range of industries, it would also establish the Minority Business Development Agency as a permanent federal agency, with more than twice its previous budget. Later on Day 2, learn how NMSDC’s Growth Initiative/Capital Managers Program can position MBEs to meet the opportunities that the infrastructure bill presents.
