We do plenty of networking events and Jopwell Talks is the one that we've been preparing you for all year. Jopwell Talks is a three-day virtual conference exploring and celebrating people of color in the workplace through interactive sessions, DEI content sharing, and inspirational talks with industry leaders.
We held the inaugural Jopwell Talks in 2019 in-person at The Brooklyn Museum, hosting 300+ attendees and speakers like Gayle King, Marcus Sammuelson, Michael Lomax, and more. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we have since transitioned to the virtual world.
This year, we've perfected the art of virtual events and we're ready for you to put your networking skills to the test. You'll learn a myriad of skills through the three-day adventure, but most importantly, we want you to leave inspired and encourage you to continue your job search by applying to open roles on Jopwell's partner pages. In addition to networking, you will learn more about the inside of your favorite finance, tech and marketing companies, while getting to meet some of the people who work at the company as well.
Jopwell’s mission is twofold: To make a substantial, measurable impact on increasing Black, Latinx, and Native American representation in the workplace by unlocking opportunities for career advancement and to facilitate a national dialogue about diversity in the workplace. We're excited to get you started on your next step in your career with Jopwell Talks.
