Honors Symposium

The Honors Symposium is designed to introduce 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 2018 Honors Symposium took place on October 9-12, 2018 in Washington, DC at the Marriott Marquis.

The Symposium is a week-long learning experience comprised of a series of events and meetings that connect and expose The ELC’s scholarship winners to leading corporate executives from major global corporations. The scholarship winners participate in professional career development opportunities, as well as community engagement and social enriching activities during the week.

Scholars begin their week in New York City where they visit major global corporations and engage in one-on-one meetings with senior level executives. The scholars will visit select cultural sites and attend evening receptions and/or dinners with ELC members and other senior level executives. The scholars end their Symposium experience in Washington, D.C. where they attend The ELC’s Annual Recognition Gala.
