The Annual Mid-level Managers’ Symposium (MLMS) is a two-day professional development seminar for nearly 4,000 managers. The goal of ELC’s Mid-Level Managers Symposium (MLMS) is to amplify the successes of Black professionals and increase their capacity for designing meaningful careers. It is not “professional development”; it’s “professional transformation” in an atmosphere where the Black experience is centered, essential and unapologetic.

As a Black professional, you have already demonstrated your ability to survive and thrive, mentor and sponsor, and contribute to your organization’s bottom line. The ELC can be your force multiplier and advocate.

The ELC’s Institute for Leadership Development and Research aims to strengthen the talent pipeline of Black leaders, providing top rate leadership programs that focus on individual growth at different career levels. If you can imagine it, then The Executive Leadership Council (ELC) can be your partner in turning your vision into reality.
