The path to Prosperity Even as recent high-profile donations have financially lifted some HBCUs, these institutions still face cumulative deficits from decades of underfunding and support. The trifecta of the Covid-19 pandemic, economic fallout and the reckoning on race highlight the critical role these institutions play in the workplace and the economy.

We’ll bring together leaders from government, higher education, philanthropy and business to discuss how to ensure these institutions get the funding and support needed to continue their mission to educate and uplift diverse talent.
