2020 BMe Vanguard & Genius Convening: Ownership & Influence

July 9 - July 12

The BMe Vanguard Fellowship is an elite leadership experience designed and facilitated by leading global authorities on social innovation, media, public policy, narrative, race and culture. Our fellowship is for Black people who are committed to the Next Narrative for Black America.

This second session will be dedicated to OWNERSHIP & INFLUENCE.

  • Influence: Engage audiences in the conversations of today through the media and other public forums.
  • Own our financial future. We must increase our financial literacy, Black banking, asset-ownership and ability to pass family wealth down to future generations while decreasing unfair resource allocations.
