The Memphis Urban League Young Professionals (MULYP) is offering young professionals in Memphis and the Mid-South an opportunity to build their legacy during the Empowerment Conference August 16-18, at the East Memphis Hilton Hotel.
This inaugural conference will offer insights and panel discussions from locally and nationally known business leaders and entrepreneurs, as well as job opportunities and social engagement.
The conference will begin with an event to commemorate MULYP's 10-year anniversary, paying homage to founders and trailblazers. The "Hiring Lounge" will offer real-time opportunities for job seekers to meet business owners, decision makers, and hiring managers. Mixology is the social event of the conference.
The New Tri-State Defender is the conference media sponsor. The TSD will also launch its new format at the conference. Aaron Arnold, CEO of "Music Is My Business," will be the keynote speaker for the YP Empowerment Breakfast.
"As we planned the conference, we spoke with young professionals to discover what they really needed and how we could change the young professional experience in Memphis and the Mid-South, and we are prepared to deliver," said Cynthia Daniels, president of Memphis Urban League Young Professionals.
Tickets for the conference range from $15 to $85 and can be purchased online at http://ypempowerment2013.eventbrite.com/.
