After two straight years of virtual conferences, Broccoli City announced that the annual Broccoli Conference (BroccoliCon) is back in person and virtually, on May 5 and 6 in collaboration with their stellar festival lineup featuring 21 Savage, Gunna, Ari Lennox, Summer Walker, Don Toliver, and Wizkid.
In conjunction with Broccoli Fest, a music festival hosted by Broccoli City, a black-owned social enterprise that focuses on people and progress, BroccoliCon brings forward thinkers from around the world who are passionate about building thriving Black communities by utilizing their skills, professional resources, and tools to move from advocacy to action.
Partnering with companies like Converse, AARP, Indeed, JP Morgan Chase, Live Nation Urban, Wasserman Music, Sirius XM Radio, YouTube’s Future Insider Program, and more, co-founder Brandon McEachern is most excited about the future he’s helping to build for the youth.
“What I’m most happy about this year is our focus on jobs. Participants will have an opportunity to interact with top companies and potentially land their dream job while acquiring a deeper understanding of how to better serve their communities.”
Along with keynote speakers and panels, there will be unparalleled learning experiences in networking, wellness, inclusive technology and innovation, leadership and professional development, and financial literacy. In-person sessions of BroccoliCon will take place at the Gathering Spot in Washington, DC. Tickets are limited, so participants are encouraged to register now to ensure they get an opportunity to attend.
Not to be lost in the midst of this is the amazing festival lineup Broccoli City has pulled together for the Broccoli Fest, also happening this weekend in Washington DC. Pulling together artists like 21 Savage, Gunna, Ari Lennox, Summer Walker, Don Toliver, Wizkid, and many more, the festival and conference combo makes for not only a productive but fun weekend.
Tickets are available for the BroccoliFest & Conference now on the official website.
