Get ready for the highlight of your networking year – Jopwell Talks! This in-person summit is our pièce de résistance, a vibrant celebration of people of color in the workplace. Brace yourself for interactive roundtables, DEI wisdom drops, and talks that will ignite your professional spark, all delivered by industry leaders who know the ropes.

Our inaugural summit was hosted in 2019 at The Brooklyn Museum, drawing in 300+ eager minds and community members. Attendees heard keynote talks from speakers like Gayle King, Marcus Samuelsson, Michael Lomax, and more. 2020 and 2021 had us pivot to the digital realm due to the pandemic, but the lineup was just as dazzling, featuring heavyweights like Howard "H" White (VP at Jordan Brand, Nike, Inc.), Michele Roberts (Executive Director of the National Basketball Players Association), Julian Brave Noisecat (Writer and Indigenous Rights Activist), Dr. Wayne A. I. Frederick (President at Howard University), RaShawn Hawkins (Deputy Director at Human Rights Campaign), and more.

Fast forward to 2024 – we're pulling out all the stops. Jopwell Talks is your golden ticket to mingle with DEI leaders, hiring partners, and our vibrant community. It's not just a summit; it's an exclusive, invitation-only affair where industry thought leaders, networking gems, and career development collide in a glorious fusion.

Throughout the day, you'll soak up these talks like a sponge, but more importantly, we want you to leave with your professional spirits soaring. Feel the inspiration? Good, because we're nudging you to dive into your job search armed with newfound zeal – check out the open roles on Jopwell's partner pages after the event.
