The Honors Symposium introduces The ELC's scholarship recipients to a wide range of business-related careers and industries to increase the number of future black business leaders. Our goal is to help fill the pipeline of black corporate executives from the classroom to the boardroom.
The Symposium is a four-day professional development experience comprising a series of events and meetings that connect and expose The ELC’s scholarship recipients to leading corporate executives and hiring managers from major global corporations. During this experience, the scholarship recipients participate in career development opportunities and enriching social activities.
The scholars also attend The ELC’s Annual Recognition Gala where they are recognized on stage before an audience of more than 2,000 corporate, education, civic and community leaders.
